Irish Politics Gombeenism and Joined-up Thinking


The Irish Department of Public Expenditure and Reform - the same one I stupidly expressed some hope in - has issued plans to cut the numbers of public sector workers by a further 4000. Putting 4000 more people out of work and adding to the dole queues - sounds like a great plan?

Don't suppose there was any real consideration of cutting down on the over generous conditions, wages, benefits, and pensions in the Public Sector, and use the savings to perhaps actually add to the numbers of those employed. But that would strain the Public Sector brain too much - and on top of that you would have the "Privileged" and "Entitled" classes start to scream in anger at being dispossessed - and that can never be allowed to happen.
