In a SHOCK poll result 73% of those surveyed felt that council redundancies will lead to key talent quitting the public sector, leaving councils unable to provide front-line services.
This survey was carried out by, wait for it, the Guardian and those questioned were, yes, you guessed it, members of the local government network.
Well I suppose that confirms it. Turkeys don't vote for Christmas.
The question I'd like to have answered is where will all these people quitting the public sector actually be going? The jobs that are available in the private sector generally pay less, have worse job security and the final salary pension schemes collapsed years ago. That's probably the answer, the people quitting the public sector are taking their pensions before the money runs out. Who can blame them really!
