Boris Johnson could cut up to 91,000 civil service jobs

Could - here we go again. "Must save money to tackle cost of living crisis.' Yes, well be hearing that on repeat now. 

 

Besides the usual headline grabbing, bypass parliament, distraction, straight to media style of government, there are some parts and quotes in this episode that caught my interest. 

 

I heard some of the Jacob Rees Mogg interview, and a union representative of the civil service union, who said it doesn't mean anything untill it's discussed properly, or WTT effect.

 

Article shows how many staff were employed during Convid etc.

"We've taken on quite a number of additional staff - indeed 91,000 - to deal with Covid and some of the consequences of Brexit.

 

"Those two issues are now fading therefore we can get back to the numbers we previously had."

Fading LOL.  I wist someone would tell that to Justin Trudeau.  I would say the fading in on cue... They have another vaccine planned for Autumn. Thanks for the post/link.

As I recall, the Labour government between 1997 and 2010 massively increased the size of the civil service, no doubt some will remember the likes of the "5-a-day co-ordinators" etc, bullshit jobs created to give people bullshit work.

 

When the Tories took power (in coalition with the LibDems), they started slashing these jobs due to 'austerity'.

 

It's pretty much the same thing again, only the Tories are slashing the bullshit jobs they created themselves, or as already stated above, those contracts are coming to the end of their term and won't be renewed.

 

The sinister charity organisation Common Purpose and its 'graduates' pretty much already controls the Civil Service in this country.

 

All that will happen is Labour will get back into power in 2024 (if not sooner) and a load more bullshit Civil Service jobs will end up getting created.
