First some facts. Despite concern about \”fat cat\” public sector pay, only £1 in every £100 taken by the top 1% of Britain\’s earners at the moment goes to public sector people.
Not just no, bollocks in fact.
£100 in every £100 \”taken\” by the top 1% of Britain\’s earners goes to public sector people. For only the public sector has that monopoly of violence which allows them to \”take\”.
In the market sector it\’s a voluntary transaction: so \”take\” is the wrong word to use. \”Given\” perhaps, willingly offered, all sorts of synonyms and euphemisms. But the only people who take are those who insist that we must, through taxation, or thieves, but I repeat myself.
