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 GDPEven 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 scientistLike 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 GovernmentNHS ManagementAre 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.
