"Norman" has been an irregular poster on RR for many years and under many different handles. The names may change but his themes don't. He usually lasts a week or two on each visit before one or other of the Mods gets tired of him then off he pops.

He essentially thinks that the Navy of today has gone to the dogs, that everyone above Lt Cdr is an idiot and should be sacked, and that things were generally much better in the 1950s, and would be even better today if we let the poor oppressed 3 Badge AB population become 1SL...

sounds about right, most firms do the same every so often they sack all directors and senior managers and let the work force have ago, I think not, from my experience's those that float to the top of the pile tend to belong there, unless they have daddy or a guardian looking out for them, the rest of us get on with what we can do.

Norman's peculiar skill was his ability to demonstrate that the reason he didn't get promoted was that he was extremely stupid.

that I can understand but it have seen some very stupid people in the wrong jobs, I think it is known as promotion above their incompetence? Norman was not even that good?

Dear old Norman also had axe to grind over his son. I never stayed awake long get enough to get the detail on that.

He certainly did and ground that axe frequently.
What he could not understand was that with the Genes donated to the sonby Norman he was fecked from the start

The navy did have a number of extremely stupid people but they have been put out to grass in this modern Fleet.
Things are so sophisticated and complex today the rather thick old and bold would have drunk themselves to death
