Public sector pay freezes and big job cuts

The Times: Chancellor Alistair Darling’s £40bn cut in public spending

Alistair Darling will this week tell government departments that the money has run out and they face a three-year cash freeze on spending.
Darling is said to believe that public sector workers will have to match the sacrifices made by private sector employees during the recession.

How about setting up panels of business men/women and have every public sector worker be forced to give a 10 minute presentation to them on why they should not be fired. That should thin them out dramatically, and the rest can have a 30% paycut, This of course excludes the lower tiers that do the real work-assuming of course there are any left and they have not been privatised and been given massive paycuts already.

No prizes for guessing the absent or guilty party here. All roads lead to Rome.

Forth largest economy to outside top ten over a ten year period...as a result of under regulation in the city. And the answer? More city of course! And, just to have a bit of "democracy" here, lets ask the great obese pile of dumb British public opinion who sould pay. No, not the rich of couse, 'cause they've earnt it! Lets have it out of those wasteful public services that I read about in The Sun.
