In a remarkable turn of events a Peer of the Realm, Lord Digby Jones was heard to speak the truth before a commons committee. He stated that while working as a civil servant:
"I was amazed, quite frankly, at how many people deserved the sack and yet that was the one threat that they never ever worked under, because it doesn't exist."Having worked for local authorities and central government I have to agree with him. Your local councils are bloated with clock watchers and incompetents who drudge along day by day filling time with pointless meetings that achieve little while complaining about the consultants and suppliers who actually do the work.
Your money pays for idiots to waste time because sacking them is just too much of a pain in the ass.
