LONG FACES AT HORSEWORLD AS CRAP BOSS PREPARES TO SACK STAFF

Web ExclusiveSad news reaches us from inside troubled equine charity HorseWorld… Thanks to shocking mismanagement under the Mark ‘Not That One’ Owen regime – which pinned all hopes on a misconceived development project – it seems that staff have today been told of MASSIVE JOB LOSSES on the horizon.

Of course, the cuts won’t be felt by Owen or his equally culpable senior management team, who together presided over a financial nosedive at the previously solvent and successful horse charity (latest estimates suggest losses of more than £2 million in just three years). Instead around TWENTY-FIVE MEMBERS OF STAFF will be dismissed at the end of February – including some involved in vital animal welfare work. Figures supplied to the Charity Commission indicate that HorseWorld employs 43 people, so that would be nearly 60% OF JOBS LOST. Even by Pinocchiowen’s more fanciful figure of 62 employees, that’s still a staggering 40% of employees getting the heave-ho thanks to their boss’ failed development gamble.

Whether workers and volunteers there are prepared to stand for this shameless attempt by Owen and his clique to save their own jobs at the expense of everyone else remains to be seen…

    …. so … where is the Chairman of Horseworld? Why does he not make any statements himself regarding this important matter.

    The Chair of Trustees, like some of the other trustees, could be said to have vested financial interests in that he has a background in high finance, whilst others on the board have current professional interests in property development. One suspects this is why they are not making any statements. Meanwhile they continue to support their managing director who seems to have lost over 2 million pounds in recent years, currently ‘earns’ somewhere around 80,000 pounds a year and has a ’13’ plate Audi that was bought for his exclusive use by the trustees. Maybe now you can see why the trustees are so hesitant about speaking.

    …. but where are the chairman and his MD hiding whilst others are left to deal with the “crisis?”

    Steady on Gloria and Jack – you’ll be getting a call from the 80k MD trying to gag you for speaking out if you aren’t careful.
