Is this the stupidest person in England?
Updated 07:47 26/02/20
It is our honest opinion that Alison Fox (pictured), who is presently Trust Secretary for East Kent Hospital University Foundation Trust is the stupidest person in England. Mrs Fox qualified as a barrister in 2005.
In an response to an Environmental Information Request for Covid data, Mrs Fox stated:
“The Trust takes the view that your request does not fall within the ambit of Regulation 2 of The Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and makes the distinction that the transmission of the virus [Covid] is primarily from person to person/fomites and is not intrinsically mediated by, or reliant on, any of the elements referred to in Regulation 2.”
Now many of you will not be aware what Reg 2 says. So for simplicity we state them below:
(a) – the state of the elements of the environment, such as air and atmosphere, water, soil, land, landscape and natural sites including wetlands, coastal and marine areas, biological diversity and its components, including genetically modified organisms, and the interaction among these elements;
(b) – factors, such as substances, energy, noise, radiation or waste, including radioactive waste, emissions, discharges and other releases into the environment, affecting or likely to affect the elements of the environment referred to in (a);
(c) – measures (including administrative measures), such as policies, legislation, plans, programmes, environmental agreements, and activities affecting or likely to affect the elements and factors referred to in (a) and (b) as well as measures or activities designed to protect those elements;
(d) – reports on the implementation of environmental legislation;
(e) – cost-benefit and other economic analyses and assumptions used within the framework of the measures and activities referred to in (c); and
(f) – the state of human health and safety, including the contamination of the food chain, where relevant, conditions of human life, cultural sites and built structures inasmuch as they are or may be affected by the state of the elements of the environment referred to in (a) or, through those elements, by any of the matters referred to in (b) and (c);
“Alison has 30 years of business and legal experience in a wide range of organisations, both public and private sector. She gained an MBA in 2001, qualified as a barrister in 2005, and achieved qualification as a Chartered Secretary in 2011. In addition she is a member of both the Chartered Institute of Secretaries and the Chartered Management Institute. She is presently Trust Secretary for EKHUFT and has experience in a range of sectors such as NatWest PLC and a subsidiary of Unilever PLC.
Her experience and involvement in a number of business start-ups and specialisation in complex start-up situations was commended in 2007, specifically for her work setting up the Research Council Shared Services Centre which involved negotiating with 7 Research Councils and the Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (formerly known as the Department of Trade and Industry).”
I feel because of her stupidity that the link below is very appropriate a song by napoleon the xv
Note as she works for the NHS she only needs to be treated in a different department. Chris
If it were me, I wouldn’t have asked the question but rather made the statement in the headline. The grounds seem clear to me – a reasonable person – and I would have to agree with the conclusion drawn by the team, given what she said.
I have worked with Alison for a number of years and I think she is the stupidest person in England. Lacking in social skills and having a greatly inflated sense of her own importance do equate to stupidity. So does not being very good at her job.
Sounds like the Peter Principle: promoted to the maximum level of incompetence
What covid data was the Environmental Information Request for though? What did you ask her?
Hospital Acquired Covid data
Even given her response, which makes it clear she doesn’t believe it travels through the air and it’s not an emission, I bet she’s either had the vaccine or she’s going to have it. Wonder why that is?
I would suggest that you advise Mrs Fox that if she is not willing to provide the information you have requested that you have the right to report both her and the Trust to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
