Another efficiency dividend to pay for more carbon pollution

By johnboy 16 July 2013 23

The Financial Review has word that Kevin Rudd’s watering down of the carbon tax is going to be paid for, amongst other things, by slapping another lazy efficiency dividend on the public service.

To avoid a hit to the budget from the lower price that carbon permits will be sold to industry, the senior levels of the federal public service will be required to become more efficient.

Sources said there would be an extra 1 per cent efficiency dividend imposed at the executive level and a 0.5 per cent extra dividend at senior executive level, delivering combined savings over the four-year budget forecasts of about $250 million.

It suits Kevin’s arm waving policy style, just blurt out a percentile and leave others to pick up the pieces.

Why go to the trouble of actually figuring out where the waste is?


UPDATE: The ABC is saying 800 EL jobs are going to go.

Even half the ALP hate Rudd’s guts. Possibly more actually….

If that were true, it would mean that the people who are running the opinion polls have only been contacting the other half of the ALP that love Rudd.
I know that Keating first used the brilliant one-liner (referring to Andrew Peacock) “can a souffle rise twice?”
That is the question about Rudd everyone should now be asking themselves.

Yeah but Keating was actually a pretty clever bloke. Rudd is a psycho.

Interesting that Labor is still slashing and burning of the public service. Looks like there’ll be nothing left for Abbott to cut if the Libs get in.

So Abbott will be breaking his promise?

Clever Rudd.

Basically, the ALP have done nothing wrong over the last two governments, except their absolutely blindingly, lethaly failed immigration policy.
So they have to make as much noise as possible between now and the election about *anything but* the boats.
So far it’s working. Abbott is looking clueless and empty. Too gutless to debate, and his only “policy”, banning the carbon tax, is now obsolete.

The ALP is a complete f***ing shambles man. Even half the ALP hate Rudd’s guts. Possibly more actually….

Yeah,pretty much, although reinstating Rudd has effectively meant that they won’t be decimated come election day.
