Ventriloquist consultants

I don’t know much about politics in Northern Ireland and I know even less about the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) but after just 30 pages in it looks like Sam McBride’s Burned is going to be an engaging read.

As a payments consultant a sentence written by Sam certainly made me think:

The image …. was of a ventriloquist consultant who – in exchange for a large sum of money – was essentially echoing back to DETI elements of what they wanted to hear ….. was willing to substantially fudge its professional opinion purely because those paying it wanted that to happen .

Burned, Sam McBride (page 28)

Food for thought!
