More Scorn Heaped On Brown

Recommended Posts

Needled by a spending junkie, Times 7-12-2005

So, lots of public sector debt, lots of consumer debt...

The first and most obvious omen is the Government’s craven capitulation to public sector unions on pensions in the face of threatened industrial action. The second relates to the Chancellor’s 2004 Spending Review statement in which he announced that he would axe 84,000 civil servants and 20,000 employees in the English councils, and the devolved Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish authorities. The public sector unions cried “carnage”. So far scarcely a drop of bureaucratic blood has been shed.
