Further to the conversation I told you about in my last post, I received this email from the bloke I had the conversation with:

Just letting you know InsertnameofEditor and I have decided it’s in the company’s best interests to adopt EDRS for Showwemake. Insertnamesofanother Director & Editor are already using the Edit Decision Review System successfully. EDRS is an internationally recognised benchmark for quality television production allows for only one change per episode. It’s very cheap and amazingly quick to install.
However if you do wish to proceed, use EDRS sparingly because the system allows for one decision or change only per episode. Whatever layers of bureaucracy you report to, are not necessarily anything to do with us or the Union (See Insertnameofanother Editor working for company).
To which I replied:

Just letting you and Editor know that I have just had approved by management WKSGM for Insertnameofshowwemake, effective immediately.
WKSGM is also an internationally recognised benchmark for quality television production and if you’re not familiar with it – it is an acronym for What Kate Says Goes, Motherfuckers.
I hope you will enjoy this cutting edge, exciting initiative as much as I will.
