Some people like to have highly convoluted plans of a quasi-corporate nature. They want to check that all the “stakeholders” have been consulted, especially those with power and vested interest. They might imagine that such a highly convoluted plan might be attractive. But of course, to consult with the subject of the plan before it is developed is unthinkable. “They” are so very attractive that their plan will not be rebuffed. It is an unrefusable offer. There may be a great deal of debate about who is going to make the approach. Obviously brave and courageous men might get a woman to do it for them. They might ask around to find someone with a prior connection to the subject of the plan to deliver him the fait accompli.

They might congratulate themselves of the cunning and comprehensive nature of their planning. Each of them is doing their personal best, PB, to solve the “situation”. It MUST be solved.
