That was so poor I didn't even finish watching it; toe-curling...

Fuck all and 6 to 7 trillion of debt

Really? Taking the piss out of public sector workers the day they announce 500,000 job losses? Low blow.

Letterman: "Really? Taking the piss out of public sector workers the day they announce 500,000 job losses? Low blow."

At the end of March 2010 general government debt was £1000.4 billion, equivalent to 71.3 per cent of GDP

Even lower blow, quite frankly.

I think you lot need to develop a sense of humour. This is a spoof of a much-loved spoof. Really. Grow up.

So how much did this cost to make?

Good one - kick them when they're down Iain, show them the Tories mean business.

I spent most of my working life in the public sector. Army Medical Services and NHS as a biomedical scientist
Like most of the public sector I was not well paid comparatively and so my pension is barely adequate even though I contributed to it.
Frankly there are far too many highly paid so-called "executives" in the privatised NHS who are bankers-in-disguise motivated solely by money. Before the Tories started the privatisation such people were motivated by doing a good job for their local population and loyalty to their hospital. Teamwork ruled OK.
Labour said they'd change the privatisation but of course did not.
Oh yes. Need an urgent life-saving blood transfusion in the middle of the night - knocked down by a drunken MP driving home perhaps - then you'll be needing me to do some work first. Yes we got paid for out-of-hours work - less than standard hourly rate and non-pensionable though. What bonus?
Get rid of 50% of "managers" and "executives" in the NHS and employ some useful people who deal with patients - they're the ones who matter.

Spot on Terry.

Local Government
NHS Management

Are two areas that I really hope the government look at, there is such waste at higher level in these areas that you could set up 2 independent bodies to weed out the waste at management level and divert the savings back into the front line very easily.
