“Boris Johnson nails down the lid of his own coffin by threatening to fire 91,000 civil servants” – Fleet Street Fox

Nothing says “regime change” like a purge of the people doing all the work.

When tanks explode, war crimes are caught on camera, and the ragtag army of defenders turns out to be better trained and informed than the world’s largest army, Vladimir Putin puts his intelligence officials under house arrest, throws conscripts on gunfire Ukrainians and dismisses all surviving generals.

And when his government is mired in scandal, drowning in crises and stumbling daily from the stupid string left by much of the night before, Boris Johnson promises to fire 91,000 civil servants without checking whether he needs to.







“Would you like Ukraine to show you what not to do?

If he had Googled “what does the public service do”, the very first result would have led him to Public Service Jobs Site, which states: “The civil service provides public services and assists the government of the day in developing and implementing its policies.”

Ah.

“The work of civil servants touches all aspects of life in the UK, from education and the environment to transport and defence.”

Shouts !

“Our work ranges from advising ministers on policy to providing frontline services…you could work as a veterinarian, customer service adviser, weapons engineer, marine biologist or web developer.”

Crivens and bugger and we’re gonna need a bigger cat.







“I know let’s all get driven by a taxpayer funded driver or a first class train ticket to Stoke wherever it is and talk about how to save taxpayers money while my photographer funded by the taxpayers takes the pictures, then we’ll all go back to London and forget what happened”

In public, the government logic is that there are far too many civil servants, they were all recruited to do Brexit, and now that it’s done, 91,000 can be eliminated.

Privately, the logic has more to do with the pressing political need for tax cuts and saving a few billion by laying off people who don’t own a platoon and earn an average salary of 28,100.

And in reality, the actual number of civil servants working on Brexit was just over 16,000, including over 10,000 redeployed from other roles, according to evidence provided to Parliament in 2019 by, uh, the head of the civil service.

Which means that if the hopelessly optimistic can consider Brexit over, it will mean the loss of 5,000 jobs. So the remaining 86,000 will be people who actually keep the country’s lights on.







“And what are you doing, Prime Minister?

And as anyone who’s ever been laid off knows, it doesn’t save money. It just moves it to a different line item, so “salary” changes to “consulting, freelance and others” while tripling in value because now an agency is taking a cut.

The state still has work to do, which is why in 2018 the big four private consulting firms signed deals worth $307 million with the government. PwC, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and KPMG have won contracts to provide services for the Ministry of Defence, Highways England, the Home Office and the East Midlands Strategic Commercial Unit, to name a few.

Last year, the government promised reform, but it has not been published. Thus, every job considered surplus to needs will likely be provided by a multinational corporation that will profit from the public service while the actual civil servants are paid less and have fewer employment rights.

The Big Four also donate millions of time and resources to political parties on all sides, working on winning policies in elections and providing manpower. Another company, Infosys, has won central and local government contracts worth millions over the past few years, and it happens to provide the immense personal wealth of Akshata Murty, otherwise known as the wife of Rishi Sunak.

It is a strange idea to fire 20% of the civil service, when ministers have spent the last year complaining about the need for more in office, where they are more expensive and less productive. But then the Minister for Government Efficiency decided to waste time, shoe leather, paper and ink to tour Whitehall and leave little passive-aggressive notes on desks, rather than just sending a e-mail, so the government is at least constantly oxymoron .

And of course they forgot the most important thing of all – those 91,000 jobs are all people, with mortgages, rent, radiators, cars, kids, family responsibilities. If they don’t work in the public service, they have to find a job elsewhere.

The Office for National Statistics says there are 1.3million job vacancies in the UK, which has doubled since Brexit kicked out those doing the worst jobs. Most of these jobs are in social services, hospitality, construction and manufacturing. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to government ads telling data hackers, cyberthreat scientists and public health modellers that their next job is to clean up a Travelodge.

Add to that the fact that we are heading into a recession, and suddenly threatening a fifth of your workforce with sacking seems like the worst situation since P&O decided it didn’t need sailors.

Many of these 91,000 people will require compensation at a multiple of their salary; advantages; previous pension payments; court costs; or re-employment, at greater expense, as self-employed. The prime minister says “we have to cut the costs of government to cut the cost of living”, but that just drives up the costs of everything.

And he could fire every last member of the civil service, reduce the government and the state to the size of a second-class postage stamp, and it would have no impact on the price of oil or food at all. beyond, perhaps, to make of them unemployed civil servants. are willing to kill for.

Maybe someone will tell him one day that 28,000 civil servants working from home 3 days a week is the cheapest way to run a country. And maybe they won’t, for some basic reason.

Because all the facts mentioned in this article – from the tanks to the policies, to the tax cuts, to the statistics, even the data on the number of civil servants and vacancies in the UK over time, have been produced by officials. They are integral not only to the functioning of the state, but also to what we know of it.

And I bet my last pound that at least one of the 100 Whitehall workers fined for the Covid lockdown parties was a civil servant assured by a politician that it was within the rules, and coincidentally knows a lot about how the state is run, at the moment, by Boris Johnson and his Cabinet. Boring them, at this stage, may be unwise.

If a business owner had just threatened to lay off 91,000 Britons, the Prime Minister would describe it as a national economic disaster. But when he does it to himself, uninvited and unnecessary, it’s no different from nailing down the lid of your own coffin.
