Pen Pushers.

Another example of where Government rhetoric parts company with the reality on the ground?

Mr Smith realises it easier to recruit civil servants than it is to train cops or teachers, but the SNP have been in power now for eighteen months. You think they would have gotten the hang of it by now.

"FIRST Minister Alex Salmond has been accused of hiring more pen pushers while the number of police and teachers has fallen. Since the SNP government took power last year Scotland's schools have lost 300 teachers and police forces are down by 800 staff. That's despite a SNP manifesto to put an extra 1000 officers on the beat. But the number of staff employed by the Scottish government rose by 600."
