Government announces public sector pay freeze

The UK government will tomorrow set out plans for a public sector pay freeze for those in the high earners bracket of the UK public sector. The move will not affect various three-year pay plans already agreed with nurses and other public sector workers, but will ultimately attempt to grab the limelight from an expected pay freeze announcement from the Conservative party this week.

We can expect to see a number of Labour party announcements this week as they try to take the shine off and the headlines from the Conservative conference. In the past we have seen surprise visits to Afghanistan and Iraq in a desperate attempt to grab the headlines although unfortunately in many cases these particular ploys have failed miserably.

While the UK government now appears to be doing what many people would expect them to do, why has it taken so long and why announce it tomorrow?

As many people have suggested over the last few weeks, the forthcoming general election will be the dirtiest and most controversial general election campaign in many years. It is well-known that the Labour Party has taken advice from various American experts, professionals in negative campaigning, as they try to grab back the headlines and voters from the Conservative party.
