Postman Pat's civil service "heroes" are all paid up members of trades unions, who finance Liebore and have them by the "short and curlies"
Postman Pat yesterday defended the decision to award £300million in bonuses to Ministry of Defence bureaucrats - saying their desk jobs could be 'difficult and dangerous'.
"Alan Johnson defends £300m bonus for M.O.D. pen pushers 'because they do a difficult and dangerous job"
Yes, Pat sorry Alan, they have to dodge flying insults, they have to make sure they don't get a cold or flu at work, they have to get to work in all the dangerous traffic. They have to make sure they don't get wrist strain from surfing the web and looking for bargains on eBay.
I'm sure they are all looking out for that cup of hot coffee that could spill in their laps.
Dangerous you don't know the meaning of the word. Dangerous is being in the line of fire or on a road in Afghanistan with substandard equipment. Not sitting behind a desk picking out the next lottery numbers.
Why does it take a headcount of 90,000 in the M.O.D. to support a regular troop force of 200,000? It's a load of pen pushers who have historically cocked up project after project, always overspending the budget by three or four times, never ever producing it on time, like 4 -to 10 years late and when it arrives it is useless. Everyone knows that an M.O.D. project is a license to print money by the contractors who run rings round the M.O.D.
No, Johnson you should pay the going rate for the job,that's the answer. There should be no bonus for just doing your job.
I'm sure many of the unemployed would love the salary and gold-plated pensions these 90,000 M.O.D. people are getting.
The front-line boys deserve the best and are not getting it from yellow streak Brown and his government.
