Re: An excellent example ...
if you want monkeys running the government and civil service, pay peanuts.
The problem, of course, is that every year we pay still more money, and all we achieve is making the same monkeys we already have more expensive. When does the monkey replacement program begin?
Public servants, in real terms, cost very nearly double what they did just 20 years ago. And we just don't have anything to show for that. Productivity is worse than ever, and debt is reaching unsustainable levels.
