What is an "OPC"?

As in "... I have condemned the work of the various OPCs here who proposition tourists to come into their resorts and take time share “tours”."

I thought a "consultant" was someone you voluntarily consulted, not someone who tries to force his services upon you.

Ahhhhh !! Now you understand the "PIA" part Peter. You may use "Arse" for the "A" word if you like. smile

I have heard of OPC as "off property contact" rather than consultant.

I also read the letter today and I am glad to hear that there are some good apples out there when there are some who give all OPC a bad wrap.
But why eat my vegetables I already know that I am short!

My father warned me about words beginning with CON.

I used to work for a company in England called Scicon, part of BP, subsequently sold and now defunct. A company largely run for the benefit of the pension funds of its directors. As we used to say internally the "Sci" part meant "Science". The "con" part meant "con".
