Local Public Servants star in political ad

babysunshine 9 October 2007 46

Local people have been approached in a political ad about the growth of the Public Service in Canberra.

They seen to agree that there has been significant growth, and that the Kevin Rudds promise to unleash “razor gangs” is all talk!

See anyone you know in this?

The PS is not exactly homogenous either.

There are some pockets of slackness, but there are areas where everyone works really hard and never take lunch. My experience has been that the smaller the agency the harder you work, but that hasn’t always been true. Some areas in the bigger depts are really busy too.

There is the occasional time-server who does the bare minimum, but they are not the majority.

Fairly dense all right.

What, exactly, do people ‘outside Canberra’ know about the public service?

All I know is that I’ve worked nearly as many 12-14 hour days as a public servant as I have in the private sector.

“Step outside Canberra and ask people what they think of the Public Service. I’m not gonna say anything else. It’s quite plain to see. Debate it in your own mind. My mind is quite solid on the issue.”

Yes Heavs, I’m pretty sure its the same person. Works well with ABC’s political slant don’t you think?

chris lilley is flaunting caged avians now??? shame on him!

Just slightly OT. Does anyone else think that the bird in the CPSU ad either is, or bears an uncanny resemblance to, the teacher from Summer Height High?

ah, yes. But his mind is quite solid on the issue.

But of course, we all are lazy fat f*ckers who drink coffee all day, get to work at 9.00, have a three hour lunch and leave at 3.30.

yeah right, in which world…

your mind seems quite solid indeed, barney – solid as a stone, and as dense…

what, exactly, is ‘plain to see’, and if it is so plain, please do explain…

Wow good argument you put up there Barney. Some mindless (possibly redneck) idiots gave their opinion on something they probably know very little about and now you also hate the Public Service? How old are you? 14? Obviously not old enough to come up with your own judgements based on substantial information.

i rekkun ze means that after about december we will have had an election, the labor party will be in and cull the amorphous mass that is the current federal p.s. no???????????????????????

and barney, well said. o, hang on, people like you vote, don’t they? shucks. we’d be greatly obliged for some evidence of your assertions – i know quite a few p.s.’s and none of them are morons, nor carved from stone, nor have such shallow life ambitions – au contraire…

what, pray tell, are your own rich tapestry of a life’s ambitions, ol’ chum, eh? do tell, we’re all ears…

“We at least centrelink workers will be in a growth industry after about December”

We, I don’t quite understand what you mean???????????????????????????????????????

thetruth thetruth 2:54 pm 10 Oct 07

There is a wrong side???????????????????????????? We at least centrelink workers will be in a growth industry after about December

Lucica Lucica 2:31 pm 10 Oct 07

I have a feeling Barney’s only encounters with public servants have been from the wrong side of the Centrelink counter.
