Co-opting

Recommended Posts

Is it me, or does it just seem wrong? Unelected folk being brought into the fold to fill spaces.

 

The local school are looking for co-opted governors. I've a feeling that means you can become a govener if your face fits, or have I got it wrong?

To me it just means they want to bring in people with specialist skill sets.

 

For instance if the school field was a muddy bog, they may co-opt a Governor who is a drainage contractor , or retired drainage contractor.

 

They can’t bring in people who will just vote a certain way to back up their cronies.

 

In theory….

It might well be they can’t find anyone else to do the job. Parish councils work this way to when no one wants to join.

I think your right though it just leads to a room of people with the same ideas with no one to tell them they are being bonkers!

You only went in to fight them from within, inside the tent pissing out. That's different.

In politics its called getting a Peerage, normally preceded by giving the Tories a suitcase full of used and untraceable readies!
