I spotted this on Douglas Carswell’s wonderful Blog this morning:
Quote of the day
“When it comes to military procurement, Israel spends £9 billion a year and administers its purchases with 400 people. Britain spends £10 billion annually on procurement and has a staff of 23,700 to do it.” – John Snow, Channel 4
It totally sums up how bloated we have allowed some Government Departments to become, and how if you look hard and work smart there are always some savings to be found, without touching the front line – these are the cuts that should always be made first.
If other countries can do it, so can we!
