DfT: Throwing good money after...

According to Her Majesty's Daily Telegraph...

The Department for Transport has asked headhunters to search for senior managers who could run the West Coast rail franchise on behalf of the state-backed Directly Operated Railways (DOR) from December 9.

A spokesman for the DfT said the decision to appoint recruiters was part of the department’s “contingency planning” to determine whether a senior management team could be found quickly enough if the DOR is put in charge of the franchise.

What a lot of wags there are in the Department for Transport!

Safety cases not withstanding.

And precisely how much is this costing and who is paying?

UPDATE: This from Captain Deltic...

Is this the smoking gun that proves an 'ABB' mindset really exists?
