Public jobs go up in smoke

SO THE curtain has finally closed on 2012.
While there were many successes in the sporting world by athletes from the U.K, the country is still broke and still showing no real signs of an economic recovery any time soon. So instead of enjoying the New Year firework display in London at midnight, I felt angry and frustrated by the spectacle. What little money is left was being blown into smoke by the same top dogs who decided to bankroll the Royal Jubilee celebrations for a whole week last year. As always, we, the taxpaying public, have no say on such decisions, just as we won’t when they decide to axe our jobs next year. The money wasted during every 10 seconds of those giant fireworks exploding could have been used to fund and safeguard some of the vital public sector jobs that are going to be axed this year.
