Doesn’t sound like much of a recovery to me!

All public sector workers should have pay frozen, urges head of government spending watchdog

‘Let’s assume the Prime Minister is not going to cut public expenditure as he says, then there would have to an increase in income tax. ‘To raise the revenue required it could not just be the top rate that is increased, the standard rate would have to rise too.’ When Mr Marr asked how much, Mr Major said a 5p increase would be needed.

  • Why punish public servants for the failures of private business and industry? Let’s remember, it’s the influence of the private sector over the past ten years which has turned the public services into what they are today. Expel the corrupt, lazy and stupid private sector ethos and ideas from public services and they might go back to what they once were: good and effective and not run for the profit of the BTs and Ameys and Capitas of this world.

    Scrap five of the biggest government IT projects – every one managed, run and controlled by the inefficient, bumbling, can’t-get-a-thing-to-work-properly private sector – and you save about £50billion in one fell swoop. It’s not state employees which are dragging us down, it is the greedy vultures in private sector. Remember that next time you complain about civil servants.
