It is more than twenty years since British organisations stopped trying to appoint and promote the best people - rather than favouring those of particular sex/ual orientation, race, class etc. And there has also been, and is continuing, a rapid (genetically mediated) decline in average intelligence and conscientious personality.
So - I am unsurprised when I see more and more evidence of incompetence. But this one is very extreme indeed!
It should not be possible, but it happened.
A British Airways airline flight was supposed to go from London to Dusseldorf, Germany - but instead it landed in Edinburgh, Scotland - a difference of some 700 miles separated by the North Sea - and the pilot apparently did not notice until after landing in Edinburgh.
Just think about that - for a moment. Yet the airline seemed quite relaxed about the error.
Get used to it - more and worse is on its way. Once you stop even trying to do your best, there is no limit to how bad things can become.
