Just turn up on your first day and resign?

There was a good quote in the papers this week about the Tessa Jowell issue, which said the affair gave the public an impression people in government 'too rich to care'. There was a Tory - I'm racking my brains to think of the bloke's name - a few years back who, radically for a Tory, suggested all private schools should be brought within the state sector as improvements to the system would never be made while those with power could opt out of it. If you're earning 152k, what the betting your more concerned with spending your next pile of loot rather than Cornish familes crammed into cold, dank B & Bs.

I believe this was even Labour policy once upon a time; at least in the early 80s I think some Labour front benchers were backing it.

TO understand public sector pay, see the link. Then type fat cat pay inot google and look at the salaries awarded by themselves to talentless mangers in the private sector who do have no worries about (lack of) performance and pay.

And yes they do cost tax payers, as countless City banks using offshore tax avoidance schemes to "reward" their staff, demonstrate.

Stop abusing public sector workers and get a life. Spend a week working for the NHS, in a school or as a bin man, and do something creative or meaningful.

There are some stupid jobs in the public sector but this stuff, week after week, is pathetic.

You've never revealed what vital service you deliver to the tax payer?

Nothing to do with the escalating costs of caring for the elderly as they live longer or the licensing act or the cost of caring for failed habitual residents (destitute asylum seekers whose appeals have failed), or implementing EU directives on waste etc, or the extra police required to fight rising crime and the terrorist threat, or the escalating placement costs for the mentally ill and disabled, or the rising costs of childrens services because not enough people want to become foster cares or the hundreds of thousands of homeless waiting for council housing etc etc. Or of course in London the extra £20 for the 2012 Olympics!

Plus more and more legislation and burdens imposed on local government by the EU and Blair's government without adequate funding.

A few bureaucrats here and there doesn't tell the true story I am afraid.

The article has a title "fat cat myths debunked" but I couldn't see any debunking going on. It just repeated what we know from here, public sector workers are becoming even more overpaid and produce less and less. Also, the author, David Walker "writes for The Guardian" so the article is largely funded by the advertising for all these non-jobs.

Dog, Keep these tax abuser posts coming. Ignore any whining brownbears and their praise for our creative binmen!?

I would agree that there is evidence of abuse within the private sector (especially amongst the big monopolies). Sadly the government have no interest in protecting us. They allow rail companies to make massive profits and charge for capital investment on top of this. They allow miss selling of endowments, pensions and investment products. The government and the public services do nothing about this because they are too busy committing abuses of their own.

There is almost no aspect of our lives that is immune from interfering busy bodies in the public services. They leave a trail of misery and wrecked businesses in their wake. They drive old people into grinding poverty by lavishing huge salaries on low grade people. You might might call it 'abusing public sector workers' but I call it protesting against public service abusers.
