The Okey-Dokey Hokey-Cokey
On Saturday I suggested that “Brewer and Pritchard plead mainly Guilty” to the charges in the Randy Williams Motion for Sanctions. David Keen says this is nonsense, and – after making like a legal Geek for rather a long time – says that a correct summary would be more like this:
It’s safe to say that Brewer denies all of the most damaging allegations, and admits to only what is already a fact in the public domain, and to making a mistake in bringing the case in the first place.
David’s Analysis summarised in figures:
- Admission: 4 statements
- Nearly Admitted: 1 statement
- No comment: 4 statement
- Denied or ignored: 21 statements
(Warning: these numbers are my slightly lighthearted summary; read the source if you intend to comment.)
There is a draft side-by-side comparison of the Motion for Sanctions and the Mark Brewer response here (130k PDF).
During August we received (based on the wordpress.com statistics service) 20,000 page views. We are on track to repeat that figure in September. Here are the current traffic graphs, taken at midnight on September 14th:
Job ads and Job Seeker ads
We have launched a “jobs” page to help ex-SPCK staff find jobs, and help organisations looking for staff to find them from the pool. There’s no restriction on Current Staff, of course, but that would be at your own risk.
Job seekers can post their details for free.
The cost of an ad for a vacancy is £10 for a one month listing, and £25 for 3 months. The money will be passed as donations to the SPCK Booksellers’ Support Fund. £10 for a month for a highly targetted niche audience such as ours is excellent value. This blog is the news hub for everything to do with the SPCK/SSG case, and is read regularly by many current and ex-SPCK staff, and others interested in the case. The blog is updated daily, and is monitored by all the key players in the SPCK/SSG case and figures from the media.
There are full details on the Jobs page itself.
We will be publishing an account from an ex-SPCK employee who reached a pre-Employment Tribunal agreement with SSG under the Brewers’ management at lunchtime.
