First, Labour must start to make the case that you can\’t have public services on the cheap. You can\’t outsource core function, your can\’t fragment through commercialisation and you can\’t do everything with light-touch regulation. Instead, the government must invest over the long term with well-paid and well-motivated civil servants and public service workers who are sufficient in numbers, motivated, properly managed and held to account. In part, that is the government\’s fault for not making the case for public spending, but it\’s also our fault for thinking we can pay less tax and get better services.
Getting on for £600 billion (Ta DK) isn\’t enough? Nearly 45% of everything produced in the country isn\’t enough?
Get a grip man!
