Or you could pay peanuts, get monkeys, then use this as an argument for abolishing the service and putting it out to the private sector.

The real problem, however, is that the civil service isn't a meritocracy. You get promoted on length of service, not ability. And sacking people for poor performance - well that is practically impossible. So you get monkeys at the top, even though you pay lots of peanuts.

And that's why you should put it out to the private sector!
