Nasty!” The Meissen Bison December 16, 2016 at 1:47 pm Not sure I follow – does one have to watch the video – or is it going to be an issue of plagiarising bollox from ole pig-face? Noel Scoper December 16, 2016 at 2:00 pm Egotist or just thick? Dr. Keith Crainshaw says: December 15 2016 at 12:34 pm Good news. I remember reading some of the commentary at the time and it was nasty stuff. Saying you couldn’t do basic accountancy like calculating dividends, calling you a union shill and suffering from some Dunning-Kruger disease. More power to you Richard. Reply P Petain says: December 15 2016 at 3:39 pm I agree. You would think that somebody operating under the obligations of membership of a professional body would able to comply with just the basic requirements for treating others with courtesy and consideration, being honest and truthful, and avoiding making disparaging references to the work of others. Only a blithering idiot would struggle with what is essentially just being a decent human being. Reply Dr. Keith Crainshaw says: December 16 2016 at 8:45 am You are right, and the fact that these people can’t see it in themselves means they are beyond help and should be ignored, or at least ridiculed. Van_Patten December 16, 2016 at 2:44 pm Noel That’s priceless… Rob December 16, 2016 at 2:54 pm “suffering from some Dunning-Kruger disease.” Disease?! I suppose in Murphy’s case it could be. Surreptitious Evil December 16, 2016 at 3:18 pm and avoiding making disparaging references to the work of others Interestingly, none of my professional codes of conduct, unlike ICAEW, forbid this. Probably because the engineering institutions would quite like professional engineers to make disparaging references to other engineers’ work when, and only when, it is unfit for purpose. Considering that Murphy has yet to rise from his usual “complete and utter ignorant bollocks” to “obvious even to a an idiot (or a journalist, but I repeat myself) that it is total rubbish”, merely “unfit for purpose” is a dizzy height possibly beyond his comprehension, never mind a realistic target for achievement.

Theophrastus December 16, 2016 at 3:28 pm Prof Steve Keen of Kingston University – the hallowed grove of academe that employs that intellectual titan, Sunny Hundal. John Square December 16, 2016 at 4:12 pm At Athens airport waiting for a flight in a silent lounge, and Mr Scoper’s post has made me snort booze out of my nose. I may be being deemed unsuitable for executive level treatment as a result of this. Chapeau, M. Petain! Andrew M December 16, 2016 at 4:16 pm > Kingston University – the hallowed grove of academe … Isn’t Essex worse for terrible economics / accounting profs? Prem Sikka springs to mind; and their graduates occasionally grace the pages of the Guardian with silly ideas. Theophrastus December 16, 2016 at 5:04 pm Andrew M I’m sure you are right. Essex does excel in other areas than economics, while Kingston is a ‘mickey mouse’ university. Ian Reid December 16, 2016 at 5:13 pm @Neil Soper My mind read Crainshaw as Chainsaw. Which would be quite appropriate. Bloke in La Mancha December 16, 2016 at 11:53 pm Theophrastus To my knowledge, Essex only “excels” in political science, and they are so far left they make Jeremy Corbyn look rational and bright. DocBud December 17, 2016 at 6:15 am My mother got her social work diploma from Kingston poly back in the 1980s. I frequently use the term ‘bollocks’ when referring to other engineers work, sometimes adding ‘complete and utter’. Theophrastus December 17, 2016 at 8:31 am Bloke in La Mancha And History. Hugh Brogan taught there – he of the masterly one volume history of the USA. DocBud December 17, 2016 at 8:40 am Bugger! Sometimes I correctly use apostrophes as well. MyBurningEars December 17, 2016 at 11:29 am Trivium: Hugh Brogan’s middle name is Vercingetorix. Dave December 17, 2016 at 4:01 pm Ahem: http://www.debtdeflation.com/blogs/2016/12/13/prof-steve-keen-on-private-debt-and-his-solution-peoples-qe/#comment-44768 Keen admits he’s following Henry Ford and Hitler. Surreptitious Evil December 17, 2016 at 5:30 pm I frequently use the term ‘bollocks’ when referring to other engineers work, sometimes adding ‘complete and utter’. “Does whoever wrote this shite still work here?” Surreptitious Evil December 17, 2016 at 5:35 pm Why did I think Kingston Uni was the old Hull College of FE (Mrs SE being a rather non-proud grad thereof.) Theophrastus December 17, 2016 at 6:36 pm MBE Curiously, HVB is also an authority on the life and letters of Arthur Ransome… Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
