Gordon Bites The Bullet

Recommended Posts

He's going to use the 'c' word, what can that mean?

It's a sad day when the prime minister talks sense and it's the main news. Will we ever hear him utter the 'D' word?

I knew a couple of hacks in the late 70s and their favourite hobby at the TUC conference was competing to spot the first TIGMOO.

As an orator, Healey was a positive bore compared to Scargill. Though arguably, he caused a lot more damage.

And as for the bullet, I suspect it's more a case of it having been rammed down Gordo's throat via a feeding tube rather than voluntary maceration.

this is where democracy fails....you cant CUT your voters.

why not prune the high earners first...dont sack...reduce the remuneration...after all, anything over 25K IS A BONUS.

Watching the news last night, why would anyone believe Labour now? It was a different record only a few weeks ago...

I do ask silly questions...

Read the article but didn't see the most telling comment that was on the news interview broadcast. Brown clearly said something along the lines that public sector spending needs to be sustainable, the upshot of that clearly if you need public spending cuts is that for the past 10 years the increases in public sector spending was not sustainable.

I've seen you mention this before. Do you really think that anyone earning above 25k should be singled out for extra tax? or that they should have their pay cut?

publicsector salaries and bonuses cut by 50% over 25K . so a 30 k salary becomes 27.5, and a 100K becomes 62K a 25K remains.

great savings in salaries, NI, no redundancy and instant savings.

And an instant loss in taxback.

Question is would that keep the jobs sustainable?

This is a man doesnt spend our taxes, he invests them. If i said to anyone that i invested £30 in the pub last night they would think i was crazy. But Gordon thinks the word 'investment' is appropriate when he is increasing the amount of our taxes spent on benefits payments.

Furthermore, when did we enter a recession? Global downturn - yes! World financial crisis - yes! But how long did it take for a single meber of the labour party to use the word recession? It was only when the figures were due out a couple of days later that they bit the bullet. But they still dress it up.

So, I predict Gordon will not use the word 'cut'. He will use the word 'choice'. We have to make public sector choices. If he is to bite the bullet at all he will use the word spending and describe his dilema as 'public sector spending choices'.

Wow, that's some policy.

How would you keep good staff? They'd all go into the private sector.

Reform the pensions, and stop early retirement, and generally cut waste yes, sure, but arbitrarily reduce salaries across the board? Good luck with that.

Not everyone in the civil service is in a non-job. I suspect that most of the police, forensic scientists, doctors, military officers etc., would all depart very quickly.

Today is the day Gordon hangs himself- while up in the gallery, Mandy is having a whale of a time pulling the strings...

Really? If this ever happened (and i dont for one moment think it will) I believe many would stay in public sector even if we weren't in a global economic whatever its callled today.

More power and less accountability.
