There’s something bureaucratic and management-speak about a job title such as “Head of Information Governance” which can make you fear that the worst sort of mix of cliches, banalities and PR warm words is about to be uttered.
But … full credit to Lynn Wyeth, holder of this post at Leicester City Council, for her comments to the media following the news that her council had received a freedom of information request about the council’s contingency plans for a zombie attack:
“We’ve had a few wacky ones before but this one did make us laugh … To you it might seem frivolous and a waste of time… but to different people it actually means something,” said Ms Wyeth.
“Everybody has their own interests and their own reasons for asking these questions.”
Careful Lynn. At this rate people might start thinking you’re a normal human being.
