I Think We Should Be Told…
It is, after all, an honest question.
Channel Four screened yet another documentary the other night, this one was all about slavery in the UK. As I didn’t watch it, having some paint which needed drying, I cannot comment upon the filmed contents, but I know someone who did watch it, and, unfortunately, Tweeted, or twittered, or whatever, about her instant dislike for the words and story of the female who was the centre of the Documentary.
Apparently, the young Somalian woman was complaining about the restrictions on her liberty when employed as a ‘domestic servant’, namely being always on call, no time off, restricted to house, etc. It was, apparently, a terrible existence, restricted to watching ‘Eastenders’ and ‘Emmerdale’, with absolutely no allowance for ‘Match of the Day’ at all! But, as usual, I digress!
The ‘Tweeted’ comment emanated from Cambridge-educated Rihana Mohamed, who very unwisely stated on her computer that “:‘Oh this is so self-righteous. ’That b****y maid needs a good slap. Some ppl [sic] here have no idea what it’s like having servants.
‘I’m sorry but being on call 24/7 and not having a day off for months and not being allowed to leave the house DOESN’T make you a slave.’
The same Miss Mohamed who is from Sri Lanka, works as a strategic change management consultant at Brent Council in north London, an ethnically diverse area, was also quoted as stating, “
‘Damn right they should get up and make what you want. That’s their job.
‘We never let out female servants for their own safety.’
My question is, quite simply, “What exactly does a ‘ strategic change management consultant’ do or produce; how strategic is the ‘change’, and most importantly, what strategy is being utilised?”
