Forget banker bashing, civil servants are the 1%ers

Civil Service © fintag

News comments:
Finance professionals (Bankers et al) are greedy, high earning people who deserved to be berated, bashed and blasted. And yet the facts show it is the civil servants who are on the gravy train.

Your average finance person is the 20th highest paid person in the UK.

Yes, 20th. Civil Servants come in 2nd and 3rd places.

A mate of mine who is a GP has a pension pot worth GBP1.5m. And he isn't alone. Civil servants are greedy scum who live off the humble tax paying banker.

Haha, fintag has really lost plot, he goes bashing bankers one day, central bankers the next, govt the day after and beuracrats finally ..

al right, mr soon to be knighted, sir fintag, listen up, that 44,161 is not reflective of ibanking and global markets .. thats probably lower than starting base wages of first year grad .. so stop coming up with more of your regaular kinghted bs ..

I doubt he ever had the plot...beauracrats are our Doctors?! Your 'mate is a GP'? Are you an idiot? Do you really think people think Doctors are paper pushing civil servants who do nothing for us? That they're on the gravy train?!! No wonder you people hate the 99%.
