When will the government reorganise the public sector?

The weekend newspapers are full of suggestions that the UK government is still paying substantial bonuses to public sector workers, many working in departments which have been at the centre of various scandals over the last few months. It has also been revealed that literally thousands of public sector workers have been made redundant, with the relevant redundancy packages made available, and then re-employed in different sections of the UK civil service. This has resulted in literally hundreds of millions of pounds being spent which could have been put to better use trying to save the UK economy!

It also places the UK government in a very difficult situation when on the one hand they are attacking bonuses to banking groups in the UK and on the other in many ways they are seen to be rewarding failure in a number of difficult government departments. Yet again we hear cries of hypocrisy from the sidelines with a "do as I say, not as I do" strategy apparently in place. Quite how Gordon Brown and his fellow ministers can stand up and attack the UK banking sector and the bonus culture in the UK while signing of hundreds of millions of pounds worth of bonuses to public sector staff remains to be seen.
