I was researching this as an aside in another chat but noticed ...

Public Sector Employment 1998 -> 2011
[ONS, Oct 2005] 1998->2005 13.2 percent growth (up to 5.846mill)
[ONS, Jun 2011] 2005->2011 5.4 percent growth (up to 6.162mill)
PSE growth over the 13 years: circa 21%
Population 1998 -> 2011
[WorldBank 1998] 58.480 mill
[WorldBank 2011] 62.218 mill
Population growth over the 13 years: circa 6.4%

So the public sector grows at slightly more than 3 times (!!!!) the rate of population growth and the services are deemed to be better how?

*sigh* ... seems I should have got out of the private sector as fast as I could. That 45 hour working week aint doing me any good ... :(
