Curiously enough, an edition of the Encyclopaedia Galactica that had the good fortune to fall through a time warp from a thousand years in the future defined the marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation as “a bunch of mindless jerks who were the first against the wall when the revolution came.”
You know, should a revolution come, I hope that special consideration be given to the marketing division of the UK government. As mentioned earlier, their big brotherish adverts are really annoying.
Especially that bloody DVLA one. You can’t escape the DVLA computer, apparently. And you probably can’t escape the mindless automatons who staff it, either. Because they’ve gone all zero-tolerance on the easiest things to go zero-tolerance on; all it requires is a shifting of the burden of proof and a quick query on the database.
Whereas going zero-tolerance on, for example, corruption or mindless street violence would require actual work, so there’re not on the adgenda.
