It was interesting to watch not for what is about to be done but for replies that people gave. It reinforced the thought that a lot of the “public” really haven’t got a clue how bad things are and on top of that the blind labour voters many still think the labour government that lost the last election heavily were right? Come on.. I planned to leave for the Philippines over two years ago and had predicted the recession three years ago. No doubt these same people supported the Rover car group which from the people I met who worked there over the years who got made redundant they were lazy, heavily unionised (would look to strike if they could!) and generally living in a world of their own. Same reason the Post office is being split up. There is talk of the Thatcher years reimerging but has anyone looked at the state of the economy in depth? does anyone realise how much money is wasted on the NHS and government workers? What about the pensions of civil servants and how much that bleeds out of the economy? I have worked within government departments previously and most are bloated with management lack “front line staff” (which is something people seem to assume is the man on the street or the receptionist in the offices) but what people don’t realise is how many supervisors, health and safety officials, managers, PA’s and other people riding the gravy train sit above the “front line staff” and they have continously grown for over a decade to a point it just doesn’t make any sense. Yet in government departments most people are looking at their pension not efficencies or actually making a decision to sort the mess out! because at the end of the day ALL government departments will over spend their budgets on purpose to remove the risk of a budget cut. They won’t sort the mess out of overstaffing because its a sure way to find your next at some point.
The bickering needs to stop that’s for sure and for some of the blind politicians to start realising its not all Rosie in Westminster. Also getting to grips with the “Benefit classes” really has to be done as well as that gravy train is getting bigger and if its done “fairly” as its being sold as.. I think people need to feel it from the bottom all the way to the top. Being unemployed shouldn’t be as easy as it is. There are still jobs out there people choose not to do and to be honest I don’t have the option of not paying people on the dole so I don’t think they should have such an easy life. Well enough of my thoughts for now as like most politicians do they have spoken but lets see what action is done before judging for or against.
