    Slight tangent for the armed forces today.
    This is the sort of shit you expect from a crappy office job. Not a job where you are expected to kill or be killed in the line of duty.

    We haven't got a government, we've got seagull managers.

    Not surprising, utterly despicable.

    Though I gave up expecting anything more than sociopathy from the average human being a long time ago.

    You obviously didn't read the article - “It is not the case that proximity to the date at which a pension would be paid was a ;consideration for redundancy selection.” ;)
    Somehow guessing that they chose metrics that purely by chance happened also to cover these people.

    Actually knifing these guys in the back is scarily dumb, since those that follow know the same thing could happen to them that's quite an encouragement for them to make their own retirement plans.

    It's not a smokescreen, it's the same thing. They are making moves to have 'partnerships' with private companies for the army too. They're dicking both the police and the army over on pensions.
    It's exactly the same thing - they haven't quite dared to call soldiers lazy and thick yet, but that's probably waiting in the wings for justifying more cuts if the armed forces get vocal in their dissent.

    For some reason the talk of them wearing stab vests and protective gear to go out and punish people for littering reminded me of entering City 17 for the first time in HL2.

    If the police can't handle riots (and they very nearly couldn't last August because their numbers have been cut so much) - who do you think gets called in, Madgod?

    You can think as you like, of course. The evidence though, is that privatisation of parts of the armed forces is moving along just behind privatisation of the police and neither seems desirable to me.

    Its a bit simplistic to suggest private companies are the sole reason for the economic mess, but I agree that privitisation of public services is generally not a good thing.

    For the love of God, is it possible to keep the conspiracy theories down a bit in here? The facts are bad enough without having to speculate wildly or make things up. I will be really quite cross if what facts I manage to dig up in my spare time get buried under a tonne of manure.

    I'm not liking these new conspiracy nutjobs, at least niteninja has the decency to stick to his own threads and disappear for three months at a time.

    Wild speculation can be fun, it's just in this instance its in danger of burying hours of info-hunting on a subject I believe is genuinely important.

    Maybe take break, over 1000 posts in 3 months?

    Try listening and learning.

    Slightly off topic, but in the spirit of tory privatisation, frances maude is currently outlining the future of the civil service - which includes farming out swathes of it to the private sector.

    A slight misquote, but he said something like "it will no longer be a monolithic state-run service and will instead find a middle ground by opening up aspects to privatisation"

    I'm not actually sure how much the civil service covers. Again, it seems an odd group of people for them to want to piss off.

    Pretty much everything. The civil service practically is the state, sorting out everything from welfare, health, pensions, defence, etc. the politicians make the policies, but its the civil service that implements all of them and keeps the country going.

    A civil servant or public servant is a person in the public sector employed for a government department or agency. The term explicitly excludes the armed services, although civilian officials can work at "Defence Ministry" headquarters. The extent of civil servants of a state as part of the "Civil Service" varies from country to country. In the United Kingdom, for instance, only Crown employees are referred to as civil servants, county or city employees are not.
    Many consider the study of civil service to be a part of the field of public administration. Workers in "non-departmental public bodies" (sometimes called "QUANGOs") may also be classed as civil servants for the purpose of statistics and possibly for their terms and conditions. Collectively a state's civil servants form its Civil Service or Public Service

    Absolutely disgusting. And just confirms that this is what they plan to do with us as well.

    Today the government declared that in future, all further Public will be sourced from Belgium and that whilst very sorry, they would be letting the existing public go.
    The current British Public will be given 48 hours to leave and a complimentary British Rail sandwich.
    "Obviously we would be happy to see any of the former public return as Tourists" said a government official.

    If they upgrade that sandwich to a footlong subway theyve got a deal.
