Might be contentious, but I am relieved that finally, Public Sector workers are going to be getting a feel for what many private sector employees have been enduring for a number of years - pay freezes, closure of final salary pension plans, reduced pension contributions..etc etc..

I find your use of the word 'relieved' to be either deliberately provocative, wilfully ignorant or just... silly. It essentially displays a "haha they're getting fucked too" attitude which seems a bit shit when you consider how poorly many of the frontline public servants are paid. Tell you what Geoffrey, next time you're in casualty and a nurse is on the arse end of a lengthy shift trying to treat you, why don't you tell her how 'relieved' you are that she/he is getting a dose of what they apparently seem to deserve?
