What's really caused those redundancies? The accident or the bad press? I'm betting the latter.
With the victims I'm always a little conscious that I'm being heartless but at this stage I'm more worried about Alton Towers and the 190 people who are going to be affected by the job losses than the people involved in the crash. Whilst I cannot imagine how much the victims lives have changed (sadly for the worse) I think if they were able to wake up and not see their face on the web or the news they'd feel much more like life was returning to somewhat normal.
Of course I know it will be the PR managers who want them in the news, not necessarily themselves, but would it hurt for them not to have to take every interview offered?
I suspect that none of them have "taken every interview offered" in fact they have in reality more like taken 1% of the requests knowing the media, they have done the bare minimum to keep people of their backs in reality.. sad but true
I would like to know what else do we have in store I guess that 190 less fte (full time employees) may only be the start.
As a forward business plan will they could they...
put the cost of MAP up again next year ? parking charge up ? general entry prices up ? or lower them and put the cost of food and drink up in the park / reduce the quality off food and drink ?
shorter opening hours ? no ERT?
this could change lots of things and not for the good
