I see the new government has published a list of top earners in the civil service, which has provoked squeals of outrage from a new set of troughers. One civil "servant" apparently defended his £280,000 salary as "modest". Well, you fucker, it's my fucking money you're being modest with. Cunt.
But the reality of the problem is exactly the same as the "soak the rich" policy of lefties. There are enough rich and they aren't collectively rich enough to make up the tax burden. In the same way, slashing the pay of the top 1% or 5% or even 10% of civil servants isn't going to do shit.
What needs to go is all the non-jobs -- and that's a lot more difficult. Each one of those diversity outreach co-ordinators is a unionised vote.
While I suppose anything is better than nothing, it's going to take a lot more "stones" to fix the problem than just cracking down on the most egregious bastards.
