Cost of living: Plans to cut 90,000 civil servants is not a return to austerity, Jacob Rees-Mogg says
The move would imply a reduction of about a fifth of the 475,000-strong workforce, which the government says would save about £3.5bn a year.
A 90,000 cut is more like edging our way cautiously towards sanity rather than austerity. Assuming it happens and assuming it isn't a case of cutting the posts but redeploying the staff.
Lockdown memories must be fading already, but what kept Mrs H and I going was the private sector, not the public sector.
