Public sector output

Iain Dale notes the ongoing rumblings over David Miliband's blog, which is costing us taxpayers £40,000 a year.
But the giveaway is that two staff spent 40% of their time running it. What do they do? Well I presume they write it, because it bears all the hallmarks of being written by a committee.
Taking a quick look at the simply dire site, it's hard to disagree with this. What is really amazing is that these two public servants have managed to produce a total of 2300 words of output this month. That works out at 32 words per hour each.

In the meantime, I have just produced three hours of public sector output in ten minutes.
