How terribly confusing

We\’ve been told that only the government can create jobs, that the private sector simply will not pick up the slack if government fires bureaucrats and that, well, cutting government jobs would be a total disaster.

PwC said the net fall in public sector employment of around 290,000 between December 2009 and June this year had been offset by the creation of about 600,000 private sector jobs.


So, the great rebalancing from tax consuming jobs to tax producing jobs is rolling along quite nicely then.

    for those that dare not touch the Guardian (is their spelling much worse than others, y’know, since ages?), Mr Potarto’s quote ends
