The ABC informs us that the Chiefly Jon Stanhope has made a rare concession to the real world and admitted that the “No Waste by 2010” campaign was rubbish all along.
- Mr Stanhope says the “No Waste by 2010” campaign was designed to inspire the community to recycle.
“Almost all slogans have an aspirational purpose,” he said.
“We will never achieve a situation where there is no waste that’s actually [sent] to landfill, it will never ever be achieved. I think it was an appropriate slogan and an appropriate target.”
I’m sure in one management course or another the importance of aspiring to realistic goals was stressed to me. Still waiting for the training where they recommend talking bollocks for years doing nothing before giving up.
It must be a special ACT Government only one.
