Tax Abuser Of The Week

Recommended Posts

But he added: "Frankly the job could be done with half as many, it could be more productive, more efficient, it could deliver a lot more value for money for the taxpayer.

"I was amazed, quite frankly, at how many people deserved the sack and yet that was the one threat that they never ever worked under, because it doesn't exist."

£135k/year, lets say after £35k 'living expenses' leaves £100k petty cash for? ooooh, a nice big house?

Year 1, nice big house

Year 2, nice big house

Year 3, nice big house Paid Off

Year 4, Pension Pot

Year 5, Pension Pot Sorted

Reslt of 5 year plan = sorted for life.

Anything extra is mind boggling. Holidays in Scunthorpe? Adventure holidays with the needy?

gggggrrrrrrrrrrrr

All civil servants should get the same as the dole. Then they would say that they would go into the private sector, but the truth is they cant, because they are stupid, and thats why they are in the public sector.

Recently started working for my local District Council about 10 months ago.

It's horrifically tedious - but there's sod all else about at the moment, so I guess I'll have to sit it out for a while.

One thing I can say with absolute certainty - there's quite a few here who would never, in a million years, manage to get the salary they're currently on in the private sector.

And I'm not being spiteful.

Yah, but, as any union shill will tell you we need to pay these prices to get 'the best people'. Unfortunately the 'best people' just happen to be the existing staffs best friends.

said it before and i'll say it again, these kind of figureres are on a par with what the state pays tens of thousands of gps, consultants and dentists and is a fraction of what nhs orthodontists were on until recently but the tax payers alliance is strangely silent on this. are they a bunch of doctors and dentists wanting to keep the golden trough to themselves?

Don't 100% agree but I certainly think that people with private sector experience are often easier to work with. I always note that Dog concentrates on local government - however there are a substantial number of charities including religious that are totally funded by the taxpayer. People working in charities can be just as tedious and basically little hitler 'controlling bureaufecks'!

Don't know about dentists and orthodontists but I have enough friends and family who are doctors. Most salaried GPs are on £40-£60k and consultants on £70-90k. What the government is doing to doctors at the moment is similar to what was done to teachers 20 years ago, and for the same reasons. You don't believe the government spin when they tell you this is a minor downturn that started in America, so why do you believe the spin about doctors salaries?

Scandal.

Obscene money which I almost guarantee couldn't be attained in the private sector for the same level of work. Those in the private sector slog away for a salary which those in the public sector sit about for - I know the situation. Those in the private sector should go on a strike - and if those in the public sectr went on strike, I'd gladly take their jobs off them.

I agree with this. Many charities become more self serving with each passing year. The ones that give me particular cause for concern are those working in places like Africa. How can these people justify travelling business class on mercy missions for the homeless and starving?

I still believe in organisations like the Sally Army. I hope this belief is justified.

Trouble with that budget is that they'll be after him for the 49k / year tax owed. Not a civil servant, are you?

I think that many people feel that the majority of doctors to somewhat more of real value to justify their salary than, say, an Assistant Director Commissioning and Transformation - Adult Social Services. You could have a hospital consultant or about 3 nurses for the same money.

How many people's council tax does £79k a year add up to?

I believe the Sally Army has huge wealth in the form of property, all I assume paid for from donations and the like.

Agree with some of this in principle.

But what about the platinum-snouted, uber-obese, bloodsoaked perma-bull(sh!ts) a.k.a the U.K government itself? Over the last thirty-odd years too...

It is all very well having a pop at various therapists, mediators, planners etc al on offer.

But I'd wager quite a few of the HPC's on here are in I.T etc. Turn the electric off, and no jobs for you (or I).

But we'd all get by in the end.

I would say that any job beneficial to any kind of human - or indeed, animal, psychology and well-being is better than some job dossing around on computer screens all day p!ssing about with w@nky codes whilst plucking figures out o thin air for some tool's "balance sheet".

This is a Friday night post, and is meant to be controversial! Discuss...

Look at some of the other councils...Tower Hamlets, Leicester and the like....you would be even more shocked at the salaries offered for ridiculous positions that are not needed....and when they are filled, they are filled by uneducated and incomptent foreigners that just make up more ridiculous positions so that their families and friends can be employed....the country has gone mad....its gone bust and will take 50 years or more....get out now while you can as there aint gonna be anything left for the decent hard working indigenous population..

And you could say that tax in itself is an abuse - it is for me - I get absolutely d!ck all back for what I have to pay in. I don't know why I bother - and can see why some have "opted out"...
