This government seems to relish sacking people and particularly enjoys the humiliation of letting them know that the axe is falling through the tried and tested method of the media. This morning's leak of the next phase of the bonfire of the quangos will have filled thousands of people with joy as the weekend approached. As Eric Pickles said back in August
I have had great fun abolishing lots of stuff. It’s been nice to see the steam coming out of the Labour Party’s ears.
Glad to see that putting people out of work is such fun, Eric. (Hat tip to Ed Brown for the picture)
