    120 front-benchers in Cameron's cabinet !

    Post by zathrus on Mon 31 Oct 2011, 12:12 pm

    In what has been reported as a typical "jobs for the boys" case David Cameron has been asked to cut the number of government ministers that he employs.

    While slashing hundreds of thousands of other public sector jobs he seems to be refusing to cut any of his pals' jobs.

    The Commons Public Administrations Committee has urged Cameron to cut at least one-in-four of his 120+ front-benchers so that he can not then be blamed for following the "jobs for the boys" culture.

    Even Bernard Jenkins, the Tory Chairman of the committee, said that: "The government did not need so many ministers". He also said that :"This is more about exercising patronage over MPs and being able to influence debates than it is about accountability."

    What do you think about that one then Paps ?

    That's an interesting bit of information Zath' !

    I have to admit that that is a lot of people to have on the Cabinet gravy-train.

    Just another nail in Cameron's coffin as far as I can see it.

    I think that most people - even Tories - would get a shock when they found out exactly how many of them there is in Cameron's full cabinet.

    I was even surprised when I found out it ran into three figures !
