From a piece in the Guardian
saying, apparently, that public sector workers are whinging, workshy layabouts who need to be molly-coddled by the great feather bed of the state as employer.
As if this is not enough, many of the public sector workers released will not have the skills the private sector businesses will need. Many will not have the attitude required for jobs in the cold outside world. There are many more suitable people seeking work, and public sector workers may be too much of a risk to hire.
I can only assume he's trying to be nice - it is in the Guardian after all - but if right-wingers say this sort of thing they get pilloried by, well, the Guardian. Peculiar.
