what is going on the civil service is now becoming political?
Ok well all know the appointments are generally political favours, but once in the roll then it is all about being neutral and doing the bidding, see that is what has gone oh so terribly wrong with this country.
Civil service is meant to be looking out for the entire country's interest not looking to promote one political party over another.
And it is not meant to become a power unto itself, philosopher reluctant rulers is what is required there, not dictatorial mini spin doctors, need to clean out the corridors and the offices of the civil service bring it to a size that works, and those out should be looking to help build the economy themselves, not be bitter and resentful.
The labour gravy chain of do nothing and yes men is close to an end, they will have to put on their big trousers and come join the adults in the real world,
