No, not ditto VP. Because unlike you, I am not calling for sweeping reforms of the APS...on account of not having the financial knowledge of each department. See the difference?
Of course, cost effectiveness and efficient departments are what is required, but calling for sackings and closures of departments, when we don't actually know what they do is not a way to get the most out of the APS.
Cannot believe they are talking about cutting pensioner discounts for utilities, as if they haven't already got enough to worry about.
That's why I tend to sit on the fence with this part as it can't and shouldn't be a blanket all cuts to federal government staff and boards and departments is either all bad and all good. Each need to be judged on their own merits and we just don't know enough of the ins and outs.
Though I don't like this government's attitude towards science.
I work in the public service. We have already been cut to bare bones, not much more can be lost from us.
But I work in only one part of the PS so I cant comment on the others and their staffing levels.
What I can say is that I would be cutting thungs like the chaplaincy funding before making more people unemployed
