The ultimate 'seagull' manager

'Seagull managing' is a term whose time has come.  There is far to much of it in the public sector, including Universities.  Here in this article Alex Andreou applies it to David Cameron.  The sense in which the term is used can be gleaned by his opening and concluding lines:
'He flies in, makes a lot of noise, dumps on everyone from a great height, and then flies out again.....'

'..Flashy but incompetent, clueless but obdurate – Cameron is the ultimate seagull manager. Whether judged on attitude or aptitude, he is truly, hopelessly bad at his job.'
