No work shown

RECENTLY Rosemary Butler called for the number of AM in Wales to increase so I turned my attention to what they actually do. I checked out John Griffith’s website which had an opening gambit of: “Here you will find details of the work I do and how to contact me.”

I scoured the website but bar a couple of token pictures of him and Jessica Morden collecting litter in Alway posed for the cameras I could find no details of the work done. I then turned my attention to Rosemary Butlers quite why a town the size of Newport needs two AM I’m unsure again a load of pictures of her opening ceremonies etc (is that not what the Mayor is there for) but no details of what her role is. After ten minutes digging I gave up still unsure what these newly created public sector posts on 60K plus benefits and resettlement grants of £50k actually do. At a time when care for the elderly etc and front line social services are being cut do we really need these huge armies of overpaid governance with as far as I can see no real role in Wales.

Lifting the curtain is a dead cert to expose the fabricated so called jobs these parasites have cultured for themselves.

Once they get a small degree of establishment, it is almost inevitable, not to say, natural they wish to extend their control, and increasing their team size does that very effectively. Like a plague of rats they expand to fill the space available, but unlike rats,. or any other vermin, or pathological diseases, who cease to expand when the food supply runs out or the infected body dies, they have the exceptional good fortune to have the almost bottomless public purse to keep gnawing on.

Every AM, or other 'elected' scrounger, simply fail to recognise the fact they really are an unnecessary cost burden on our pockets, and whatever they take out cuts down the ability of the people to fund vitally essential services. A salary of 60k means less for the average taxpayer to have spent on the needy parts of the social fabric.

Conscience? not a chance, they take without shame.,

So true. It's Parkinson's law writ large in Wales. If I didn't live here I'd love to see it attempt to function as a separate independent state. My hat the economic horror of stuffing the public sector with no concern for costs would dawn very quickly.

There is not enough AM's to keep a watch on the Welsh government. Take a look at the work Welsh MP's do in London.

Just how many more politicians, quangos and civil servants do you want in a constituency of 3 million people and a banana republic economy?
