"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

B*gger Labour

As the LibServatives make themselves at home in Westminster they're digging deeper into the spending by the previous government.  Try these for size:
  • For 13yrs the Department of Health was given/took £8 of fruit a day.
  • Schools hired 8x more administrators than teachers.
  • Jobs for NHS Managers grew 3x more than nurses.
  • 80% rise in the number of civil servants.
  • Public sector press officers doubled, at an extra cost of £126m.
  • Marketing & Sales Managers increased from 10,000 to 23,000.
You can't tell me that frontline services have to be cut or that taxes must rise, not until the coalition sorts out the unholy, troughing, taxpayer-funded mess that Labour has left behind and addresses the ongoing issues surrounding MPs' expenses and their taxpayer-subsidised restaurants, cafes and bars.

PS Miliband isn't the only one to retain his ministerial Jaguar and protection officers - so have Alan Johnson, Jack Straw and others. It's time they let go of the trappings and got used to their reduced status - they're lucky they've still got jobs.
