Whitehall’s Civil Service – a law unto itself?

Posted by davidburbage on October 2, 2012

It’s certainly something to note. If the average voter was asked “which is the political party that creates the highest six figure Government salaries” I bet the vast majority would choose we the Conservatives, and not, as is the real position, the Labour Party. This is from the Daily Mail today (quoting some facts, not expressing opinions!)

It emerged in recent weeks that the number of  senior government workers earning more than £150,000 has fallen by a third since  the Coalition came to power.

In April, 234 civil servants and other  officials had salaries in the top tax band – down from 291 in 2011 and 372 in  2010.

The pressure on the highest salaries in the public sector is downward.

Of course, this then generates less tax….
