Re: We need a wall to keep us safe - Security staff... not so much
Oh that's like the why are we paying 'hospital managers'? Presumably the 56% are the guys who pay salaries, recruit staff, run training courses, clean offices, empty waste paper baskets, cook food, make sarky comments on El Reg articles, sanitise telephones, develop websites, etc. etc. etc.
And maybe 'essential' is ''let's keep watching out for Al Qaeda - but forget about chasing the guy with less than a kilo of coke'
