Kent Police Authority 1500 jobs.

Now, on the KPA website..."We aim to give you value for money policing. The Authority sets the annual budget for Kent Police. The Authority costs just £1.5million a year to run"

so either one of the figures is BS, or they really are getting rid of all the staff who earn £1000 PA.

Lets say 25% of the layoffs are currently paying a mortgage. Thats quite a big blow to the housing market.

And this is only a few of the LAs out there ready to swing the AX.

Aren't all these public sector workers going over to the private sector sponsored by the taxpayer (as per thread from yesterday)

The GMB union has estimated more than 125,000 posts are currently at risk

In other news, estate agents say unless we have negative interest rates housing market will disappear, Trevor Phillips says unless we get rid of all border controls, the UK will collapse, and Health and Safety mandarins say unless we are all covered in Bubblewrap and drive at no more than 3mph we will almost certainly all die very soon.

Stop talking, start cutting.

This is already further along than some may think. OH is one of those from Kent County Council. Informed back in November and leaves at end of March.

Sorry to hear that, but the type of job, length of service and payout info would enlighten if you care.

Personally, Id tell me to shove it, but it would help.

Id be happy to see West Sussex County Council on that list too...id be even more pleased to see 50% staff cuts if it meant a 50% cut to my council tax bill

I've heard WSC are having their own silent cull. Not heard of any figures though.

She's wanted out for some time anyway so it's no great loss.

Safe Schools, P.A. type role for about 5 years, just the statutory payout, as are the majority.

Grant Shapps yesterday

My hon. Friend is right. In the past week or so since the finance settlement, I have had a procession of council leaders coming to see me, usually with their chief executives, to plead that they have no money left. One came this morning, and notably brought the chief executive who is being paid £180,000. I pay tribute to those local authorities that have taken the necessary steps and are therefore able to take advantage of the council tax freeze.

Was he being sarcastic or does he think £180k is progress?

much obliged.

and why do schools need PAs one would venture?....or in this case they didnt.

The governments non job creation scheme really does have to end if the economy is to survive...Its pain all round but the quicker they do it, the quicker its all over.

They work with schools, not directly for or at them.

Whether they are all "non-jobs" is debatable of course.

They'll probably end up spending more money on outsourcing to their own ex-staff anyway :D Seriously.

Yes, these cuts need to happen, but I don't like all the gloating on here...a department run by my district council, which helps vulnerable adults/children/families has just been cut (I've just heard about it today as the place where I volunteer for helps them out)...sure, a lot of waste will go, but how many vulnerable ppl will be left without a support network?
