They don't get it either

I am not going to take the view that public sector workers are the embodiment of evil, while the private sector is all sweetness and light - think Crapita. But you really do have to wonder whether they think money grows on trees.

Of course, if a serious effort was made to cut back the burgeoning cost of greenery and other government waste, there might be a little more left in the pot to reduce the deficit. But even then we have a long way to go before the current public sector pension bill is affordable. Thus, not only don't they get it – they ain't going to get it. At least striking reduces the wage bill.
