    I doubt very much whether you would come out with your smart *rse comments if you had been made redundant by those gits at DLA.

  • To the Anonymous contributor(s) of the last two comments. Clearly I have over-extended my reach against (a) true master(s) of the bon mot. You have taught me a valuable lesson which will stand me in good stead for the future. When the argument is lost or the proposition is unarguable, I shall simply resort to name calling and all shall prostrate themselves in admiration of my brilliance.

  • Moving away from the children and back to the point; whether it makes business sense or not, the public show clearly (as can be seen by the comments) does nothing for their image and of course it will upset both those recently made redundant and those employees feeling worried over their roles. Back in the real world, the client base, many of whom have been vilified for far less, cannot be impressed. The real questions is, will the expenditure lead to more work for the firm?

    Based on a 20-year Wall Street experience, any expenditure that builds a better more cohesive firm with more collegial partners who better understand how to leverage each other's (sometimes far-flung resources) will ultimately lead to more work for any firm. My guess is that, unlike the most of the "children" (as you succinctly described them) here distracted by the venue of the meeting, the firm's leaders have a longer-term view.
