I've no problem with the hard working under valued nurses, teachers or even the police even though there are too many. My problem is the thousands sitting in their little cocooned offices passing the work down and down until someone actually does something. We have thousands of civil servants who do absolutely nothing except pass the work to someone else. Unfortunately the civil service run the island and to this day we've not had a single deputy with the guts to stand up to them. Instead they make the rest of us work until we're 66 or 67 to pay for their massive underserved pensions, pensions which every other government in the world have put a stop to. Unfortunately our gutless States yet again use those that can't fight back to make their savings. The civil service is like the Burmese Government, those that are in it bleed the country dry and the rest can do nothing about it. If we were starting from scratch the civil service would be less than half the size it is and cost a third of what it does now.
