Excellent article here from Mark Serwotka, PCS general secretary. For the rest of the article click HERE.
"In these times of austerity, when there is less money around, we have to face up to reality, we can no longer afford to do this, we all have to tighten our belts..."
Politicians of all parties continue to trot out this rubbish daily to justify huge cuts in public spending, including the jobs and pay of millions of public servants from jobcentre staff to tax credit advisers and from nurses to teachers and firefighters.
But is there really less money around? Of course not. Our economy is still one of the largest in the world and some people are still doing very nicely, thank you very much.
