The civil service

to be cut back by a fifth

a savage attack


by Scooj

I am a civil servant and I am disgusted with today’s announcement that the government has decided to cut 91,000 jobs. Worse still, they made the announcement in an article in the Tory propaganda machine the Daily Mail, rather than having the courtesy to inform their own staff first. Disgusting but typical.

I would hope that the nation remembers that it was the civil service that kept the country on its feet during the pandemic, that keeps the government machine ticking over. Civil servants were lucky enough to keep their employment throughout, and worked bloody hard too. And don’t forget they also pay taxes, not something the government will ever recognise.

I despise the Conservatives and their contempt for the public sector. I yearn for an election and the chance to be rid of the lot of them.
