Spot the difference


"Signs an employee might be a corporate psychopath included being smooth and charming, redirecting conversations to themselves, putting down others, telling lies, demonstrating a lack of empathy, creating internal power networks and using them for personal gain.

Signs of trustworthy, diligent, chirpy, psychologically well adjusted employees might include:

Being smooth and charming, redirecting conversations to themselves, putting down others, telling lies, demonstrating a lack of empathy, creating internal power networks and using them for personal gain.

Psychopaths threatening Australian businesses, experts say

Meanwhile, Lord Black of Crossharbour has enjoyed the convivial company of fellow inmates during his first year in jail.

Comments tend to suggest the Conrad Black is a saintly chap who was done wrong by the establishment, yet still manages to put on a happy face and contribute to the rich intellectual tapestry of human kind.
Jolly good for him!

"I feel for Mr. Black, he did not deserve a 6 year banishment.

This has been a travesty of justice. I am happy to see that Lord Black has been keeping his spirits up (I hope this is for real). I wish him all the best for the future and this includes his being released from incarseration (sic).

70 million dollars were pillaged during the trial, and not by Mr. Black. What was done to him by the Chicago machine is absolutely disgusting.
Needless to say, a strong Conrad Black supporter.

Very sad. I suspect he's not a bad sort on a personal level.
Certainly a great mind. When you treat the money of shareholders as if it's your own there is occasionally a price to be paid. Best of luck to him. David Radler they should throw back inside.

$6.1million seems peanuts now against the billions our banking 'giants' have taken for themselves while sending the rest of us to perdition. Go Lord Black I like your style!

Jeremy Martin, Exmouth, UK


Black's fraud seems pretty small beer in comparison to the bankers we are bailing out.

Neil, Portsmouth, G.B.


It reflects the character of his Lordship, that he makes the best fist of his present circumstances.

Tom Stack, Derby, England


What a character. A real lesson to all the complaining, self serving victims of our era. Take whatever life serves up and make the best of it

David, Amsterdam, Netherlands


A miscarriage of justice at the expense of a good and talented man. Nice to see he continues to contribute to the public discourse.

Prison not so bad after all
