Getting paid extra for simply doing one's job to the best of one's ability seems to be NuLabour's culture of rewarding the ' proles ' and a phenomenon that spread into the public sector with their election in 1997. As a civil servant I have never approved of this practice but many of my colleagues, not unexpectedly, do. Quite why a good performance should be rewarded when a poor one attracts no sanction always puzzled me but I suppose the argument in its defence, that the little folk got nothing when the Tories put their sleaze about so why complain about a good thing now when it's our turn, proved irresistible.

Still, once this year's spend is over and done with the gravy train will well and truly hit the buffers and talk of bonuses will evaporate quicker than a promise of an Indian summer......

It was all part of pretending to be like the public sector. Civil Service bonuses came along with Corporate Logos for Quangos and over use of the word chief exec.

Much of this will be gone in 24 months from now.
