    Can somebody give me the interview questions beforehand so that I can pass the interview just like these appointed deputies? When the lady in the peach who is as dumb as a box of rocks can become a deputy then I know for certain that the questions were given before the interview….She is not the only one who had them.

    The deputies are only filling vacant posts. No new jobs were created. And in the case of princess Margaret and Harrison college swapping occurred. @wayne dread. Just saying
