February 4th 2001 – Andrew Bibby reports on the circumstances surrounding Norwich & Peterborough’s rather sad attempt to be “democratic” in its approach to recruiting directors. The chief executive Matthew Bullock stated “Member-nominated candidates do not necessarily increase accountability. It’s a romantic notion. Who do they represent”?
Our Comment – The directors do not like the idea of being accountable to members and they will fight tooth and nail against it and that is exactly what they did with their “publicly advertised recruiting campaign”.
