First Chicago, Now Rhode Island- Whitehall Next






I posted here that Chicago was being forced to close Government operations for periods, now Rhode Island has had to follow suit.

This morning Public Sector workers are being softened up for the inevitable. Brown is going to attempt to end final salary pensions in the public sector in line with the Private Sector.

That puts him on collision course with the Public Sector Unions,as per the Post Office Unions, and a good chunk of his own Party who see the ever growing State as the way to Nivarna

And since the public sector has hoovered up all the dross that are incapable of getting private sector jobs, it's not like they have any credible leverage.

Strike and don't get paid. With the unions broken, there won't be any mass action or solidarity, and us private sector types probably won't even notice one way or the other (he types while looking out at the contents of his bin strewn half way down the street, as per usual).

What are they going to do? Quit and join the scramble for a decreasing number of private sector jobs, with employers who view their 20 years of paper shuffling as the skill-free waste of time that it is?

Boned, they are.

Well - check out the last three paragraphs.......

The purgative for the British constipated bureaucracy will involve a fundamental change in the philosophy, implementation and accountability of our public servants (and big business) - anything else is doomed.

The focus on process rather than delivery must be destroyed - the idea that spin, focus group meetings, memos and "executive reports" can repair physical problems must be shown to be utter folly that has no reward - in fact it must be punished.

We have a government that is loaded with failed lawyers and patently innumerate accountants advised by erm... patently crooked accountants (Stand up PWC!), failure in both public service and public office should have it's reward - penury or at least demotion to the average - this should apply to both public and private sectors.

Will this happen ? well, there'll have to be some prising of finger off door frames and much wailing - I don't see a politician capable of both doing it and explaining why it's happening over the general wailing and gnashing of teeth Daniel Hannan excepted ..... wish I could get a bet on him being Prime Minister..... I can cope with pompous but correct.

I can't wait. It's going to be fucking hilarious watching them all emerge from their council buildings, squinting in fear at the bright lights of the private sector.

Bring it on. Useless fuckers won't last a fast five minutes in the real world.

Fire service to be shut down and the metaphor of Labours' and Jimmy Snot's scorched earth policy to be an actuality!

Well, Charles II had a good idea back in 1663; set up Rhode Island as a way to piss off the Puritans in Massachusetts-a colony right next door to theirs with total religious freedom, welcoming all and sundry religious nutjobs who'd been exiled from Boston (Jews, Quakers, Baptists, Catholics, 'heathen').
Now that everyone has religious toleration, is there really a need for Rhode Island anymore? Should they just write up a report on this "lively experiment", divide it between Connecticut and Massachusetts and save taxpayers millions?
I do know that the government of Rhode Island is the largest employer in the state of Rhode Island.
