The only miracle room in PNG is a bar where a Kiwi buys an Aussie a beer!

Probably not many Aussie's around at the moment who admit to being Aussie's, in light of the national embarrassment due to recent events in South Africa.

Rumours swirling thick and fast at the moment. Not prepared to be the first to post in case I'm labelled as a wishful thinker. One thing is certain, change is in the wind.
Might be time to pay the piper.

Are we referring to Simon Says and TooFar being replaced by Durani and Mileng?

Amazing.

April is only a day away so guess we will know very soon.

Durani? That sack of crap? Mr 10%?

If you read this it confirms that Foo has "retired" and Durrani is now the interim CEO.

This confirms my earlier post.

https://www.thenational.com.pg/foo-r...hief-40-years/

The only one to go is the reference to April but more on that later.

I was also sent the following which is in reference to the new CEO:

Durrani is widely known as King Julien

WIKIPEDIA .......King Julien considers himself to be king over all animals he encounters, but is oblivious to their dislike of him. He is very lazy, childish, immature, dim-witted, and spoiled to the point where he will not offer assistance to ensure his own safety. He is also very proud of his bottom, which he refers to as "The Royal Booty".

Certainly is, there is a lovely cartoon from "The Adventures of Wallet" depicting my departure from PX which includes him.

I also remember having to explain to him that "annual" did in fact mean "every year" whilst trying to get my yearly increment approved.

The Donne, yes, that's one of the rumours I heard. Not seen anything to confirm it.
Kiwiconehead, is that; "Adventures of the Wallet" by Martin B. ?

If the saviour accepts and removes the interim it will be June when he takes over. Decision has to be made by the end of April. If he declines who knows?

I do know he reads these posts and hopefully he will be the saviour but 787 fleet manager is a pretty good dangling carrot.

Just imagine King Julien and the world's best HR manager in charge!

As for Toofar I am waiting on confirmation. Not sure if the replacement is any better.

Racism is rampant in Poxie.

Hahahaha!!!!!!!

Penguins of Madagaska, yes I remember King Julien!!!! Hahaha.

PX lost a lot of excellent engineers during Durani's "reign". Wouldn't be too much of a stretch to think that style crossed over to the the Pilot contract negotiations.

Maybe a Steven Bradbury type win? No win for the Pilots, thats for sure.

Think another Fokker Capt might have slipped away, while we were all concentrating on the "retirement" news.
