That’s how many public sector jobs that have been lost in the last seven years of Tory Government according to the Mirror.
Public Sector workers now make up just 16.9% of the total workforce in the UK, this is the lowest number since the 1940s. All of this has been done in the name of austerity . Add in the cuts to social security and you have to ask yourself where has all this money saved gone.
We know that there has been a massive growth in agency staff, when you add in the sale of public assets, the creep of privatisation in the English NHS then the Tory narrative becomes even clearer. They won’t be happy until they have returned us to the dark ages.
The impact of this programme of staffing cuts is frightening to say the least . We know about the disgusting rise in food banks in this country but as Unison have highlighted the impact across the board is huge.
Cuts to the public sector hurt the poorest , not the wealthy . The Tories, helped by Labour and the Liberals, have painted a picture of the un deserving poor, don’t believe them. The Tories have not changed, they are the party for the rich and powerful as they have always been, the rest of us don’t matter other than at election time and even then they just lie.
Stop falling for their shit, we have got to get the Tories out for all our sakes, ffs people stop voting for these toilet stains.
