The Culture Secretary recently ordered the re-run of the selection process for a new trustee at the National Portrait Gallery, after the candidates he favoured failed to make the shortlist. So we wondered: who wouldn’t make the short list for jobs in connection with Avebury and Stonehenge? We came up with the following:

  • Anyone interviewed by Historic England that opposes the short tunnel ruining the Stonehenge World Heritage Site.
  • Anyone interviewed by the National Trust that suggests they avoid expanding their obtrusive commercial operations inside the largest stone circle in the world.
  • Anyone interviewed by English Heritage that has an opinion on how the site should be run.

Few of us need apply then. It seems you have to bite your tongue to get (or keep) a British heritage job!
