    I want to know what makes the public sector so special that they need job security and excellent pensions when people in the private sector get none of this and we've had cuts for years and we didnt complain. Whats makes a policeman superior to a builder or mechanic that they shouldnt have their job cut?

    You mean like Vestas who didn't complain?

    Anyway you know the answer to this, MPs are voted for by constituents, if a Govt annoys those they directly employ they are more likely not to vote for them in the future.

    Which is why the public sector will always be far better remunerated than other jobs which is why people fight tooth and nail for the jobs if they have any sense about them.

    Which is why all of thats going to change under this government hopefully. Instead of being a capitalist state we've turned into an authoritorian state and were told how to live our lives. A recent survey said that employers in the private sector see being employed by the public sector as a disadvantage or it doesnt matter what so ever and it wont have any effect on whether they get the job or not.

    Right so the Govt isn't keeping defined benefit pension schemes, is going to make compulsory redundancies and won't be increasing remuneration?

    Not sure what the second part was supposed to add...

    But since you mentioned it, its hardly surprising is it? Certainly doesn't tell you anything unless you know how many say its an advantage or doesn't matter.

    Thats what i mean why are public sector workers treat like royalty. What about builders who build our homes or mechanics who service our cars surely they deserve just as much. Some Police are so ignorant as well they think their above everyone else.

    Its a free market, they should have been a bit smarter in life and get a public sector job instead of bumbling into private sector medioraty.

    I like you, a real ad campaign driving for young people today into the public sector jobs of tomorrow - highlighting how much better it is on the pocket to be in the public sector.

    Because to the Conservatives, the police are seen as some form of bastion of society because they maintain law and order, but builders or mechanics would just be seen as working class bums who they don't care about.

    Its the politics of envy. Too many people complaining about why they are society's losers and wanting 'levelling down' instead of focusing on aspiration themselves.
