  • Will Shoosmiths never learn to regain control of their PR. Following the disasterous trainee related PR earlier this year, they now make ageist statements. Maybe I am now just getting too old, but this seems a shocking statement to put into the press - under 50 eh? Well all you at Shoosmiths now know how seriously the firm takes HR law. Clients take note.

  • Is this a Gerald Ratner, I wish I hadn't said that moment for Mr Ballard?
    Clearly it is unacceptable for a discriminatory comment to be made whether in jest or not about age, race or gender!!
    Mr Ballard has compounded this by stereotyping those that work in the social housing sector.
    Mr Ballard has caused no doubt caused offence to a number of colleagues and housing association clients.

  • Andy Ballard doesn't look a day under 50 years of age!

    He therefore is disqualified from his social housing team!!

  • Andy Ballard should be ashamed of himself for making discriminatory comments.

    I do hope the days of making discriminatory comments and jokes are over!

  • This is as close to a "Crapner" comment as you can get-and what exactly does he mean by "...brought on"?
    Hopefully the clients will also spot that the new hires comprise only 2 "Social Housing Experts" out of the 8-10 Guardian reading teenagers being redeployed.
    What a goof!
    Thisdeserves much wider circulation but as its Shoosmiths again, frankly,who cares?
