    Yeah, there's a huge market in companies acting a salesmen for microsoft/oracle/sage or other business software. Occasionally they have some sort of a value added function, but usually they just charge enormous fees to tell a company to take on an IT project which 50% of the time is never completed. Just as the invisible guiding hand intended.
    Or you know, save them millions of pounds on ms contracts and defend against audits from sap/oracle/ibm/adobe

    or even manage repetitive tasks and support functions. backup aas or sam aas...

    or you can hire fucking rookies like keckers must have to have such a bad taste in his mouth that he brandishes the entire industry like that, similar to racism but its okay because hes only branding people based on their job not their colour...

    Yes. Proper software salespeople are expensive, and usually measure their personal sales targets in the millions of dollars. A typical salesman can maybe manage 5-6 accounts at a time. For organisations that aren't going to be bringing in the relevant cash you palm them off to local resellers who do the process much more cheaply and take a fixed cut in the process. They may also take on the role of first line support, offer routine professional services or offer regionally specific pricing deals/indemnity etc.

    Enterprise software sales is not a world you want to dig too deeply into. It's mad.

    Software re-seller as a job doesn't require automation to eliminate it. It just needs more standardised global licensing laws. It's actually one of the small number of jobs directly threatened by institutions like the EU that try to make multi-national sales easy and simple.

    I don't know whether to laugh at your pointless job, or be impressed by the fact that you are one of the few brexiters actually voting in your own best interest.

    Hardly. Covering small national markets is only one reason resellers exist. The dominant reason is to deal with market sectors that the prime simply doesn't give a shit about.

    Hint: Most jobs are pointless sp4m, we live in a world of fake jobs with fake value attached in order to have an excuse to pay people who buy stuff to satisfy fake wants. Don't take everything so personally.

    Yes it does. The decision to extend and re-extend the investigation period was taken by the NEC.

    Moreover, the ability for the NEC and NCC to set their own disciplinary procedure timetables in an opaque manner was heavily criticised by Chakrabarti and changing this one of her key recommendations. Obviously that report has been roundly ignored as it would result in a load of crusty old Corbynites being kicked out of the party. That's why Corbyn went to extraordinary lengths to stuff the NEC and install his lapdop as the chair of the disputes panel.

    That she has since resigned for antisemitism is illustrative.
    You mean the NEC that until very recently was led by the Blairite Iain McNicol? The Iain McNicol who tried to prevent Corbyn from attending an NEC meeting and who tried to stop him from standing for re-election?

    That NEC?

    Sorry, why are we talking about the ex-chairman of the NEC and his opinions of Corbyn? What the ever living shit has that got to do with the leadership's collective paralysis on Ken Livingstone?

    Do you not see how you are the problem? Any criticism, any issue that comes up: "YEAH WELL IT'S THE LABOURITES AND WHAT ABOUT THE MEDIA WHY DO THEY NEVER TALK ABOUT THE TORIES?!?!?!"

    Maybe, just maybe, this isn't a right wing media conspiracy and maybe, just maybe the criticism is fucking well deserved.

    Some facts for you...

    Anti-Semitism exists in the Labour Party.

    Anti-Semitism existed in the Labour Party before Corbyn took over.

    Surveys suggest that anti-Semitism is more prevalent in other parties.

    Labour's NEC, which until recently was led by someone who's anti-Corbyn, is in charge of discipline.

    Labour's leader has no power to suspend or expel party members.

    And Hitler was a Zionist. We're more than familiar with your "facts", little cultist, but what have any of them got to do with any of the things I've said?

    They're a pretty decent rebuttal to your implication that there isn't a concerted effort to smear Corbyn or anyone to the left of the tories by wealthy media barons.
