"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."

For shock value alone, this map from Olly at You've been Cromwelled qualifies:

Public Sector Employees in Great Britain



Yes, we all know that public sector employment is out of control but this fiery map should still send a shiver up the backs of everyone who cares about this country and the changes that have taken place since 1997.  It's bloody unforgiveable.  Public sector workers/Town Hall jobsworths should do the decent thing, sift out the dross amongst themselves and fall on their swords - it's no good cutting essential frontline services when the public know that there are so many needless jobs in state hands that must go.  And it's no good unions blaming the current 'Tory-led' (yes, we have noticed the directive from above) coalition or whingeing about strike action either - the state must be slashed.  No ifs, no buts.  They could make a very good start by sacking all those who've been on Common Purpose courses, but I suppose that's a dream too far.  Maybe a withholding of Council Tax?

  2. Thanks Mr W - the extent of the state sector should be spread far and wide.

    Trestin, we've always thought the reach of the state was too big but the map puts it into perspective. Truly awful! Obama is in the same mould as Blair/Cameron so watch out - the US is next for the overt communitarian/Agenda 21 employees.

    As an aside, I seem to remember much crowing by the Dems when they announced employment figures last year. It turned out that the increase in employment was due to govt employing more census-takers. I think that says it all. These people are charlatans.
