Pay restraint?

Gordon Brown has announced that senior civil servants, top NHS managers and judges will get a pay rise of 1.5% next year.

All in the name of ‘leadership in the exercise of pay restraint’.

This comes after an announcement that there will be a rise in the salary of MPs of 2.33% and following the many recent accusations of expense-fiddling by them.

Is there nobody in the government with enough bollocks to tell Brown how fucking bad this all looks when viewed together?

Apparently not.
