Speed-up redundancies! Now!

The South Australian Treasurer, Kevin Foley, whines about a loss of GST revenue, as always with the disarming and unquestionably deceptive phrase ‘four years’. Instead of crying over predictably spilt milk, he should reduce drastically the anticipated period of reducing government employees by some 3900.

Instead of the ‘four years’ given in the current budget, it should happen very quickly indeed, certainly by the end of the current financial year (it should have been by 31 December 2010). And then prepare for some 10,000 more because they too will become unaffordable. Alternatively, some reduction in the salaries paid to the least productive employees–i.e. those of government–could ameliorate the loss of positions if anyone seriously thought that they possessed integral merit.

So, stop whining and act according to the financial dictates of the times both at present and reasonable to anticipate.
