Public service cuts should be a thing of the past...

How often do we have to put up with National Party BS that the Public Service is bloated and should be slashed? It is far from bloated and when Labour returns to power it will be extended once again. So many services are corruptly farmed out to friends of the National Party for financial gain not public service.

There have been and will continue to be further rounds of cuts to the Public Service. At present they are amalgamating a number of departments to cut costs and services. They go hand in glove!

In 1985 there was a public service worker for every 38 kiwis, now there is one for every 94 Kiwis. A bloated Public Service?  Yeah right!

If you believe that there should be an adequate and capable Public Service working in the interests of all New Zealanders, make sure your voice is heard in November 2011 - and make sure your vote counts too!

In 1985 - 85423 public servants.

In 2010 - 46822 public servants

In 2011 - even fewer

Keep NZ Working
