Bad for econ­omy

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Cartoon -

ThIS war against the pub­lic sec­tor is child­ish, stupid and not at all help­ful. Sure go for the big fish like the coun­cil ex­ec­u­tives on £100,000 a year, but leave the over-worked, un­der-paid front­line staff alone. I have been a civil ser­vant in the past - I was on £7,000 for a full-time role about 10 years ago – how can that be over-paid? And how can they say “cut­ting the wel­fare bill” and “cut­ting jobs” in the same sen­tence?

That’s just stupid. The cull of pub­lic sec­tor work­ers will see un­em­ploy­ment rise, the wel­fare bill go­ing up and spend­ing on the high Street fall – that’s re­ally good for the econ­omy! I will be scan­ning the lists that have al­ready been pub­lished of non-VAT items to avoid pay­ing as much VAT as pos­si­ble af­ter Jan­uary – there are ways around this as­pect of this joke of a bud­get (no VAT rise the Tories said be­fore the elec­tion).
