After week off he is back as vile as ever.
Pay cuts? Clearly we are NOT all in this together
With depressing predictability, it's politics as usual again. The temporary 'we're all in this together' truce didn't last long.
The opportunist, finger-pointing blame game is in full swing and the Left are back to howling about 'austerity' and 'Tory cuts'.
Littlejohn claims that he knows lots of company directors who have taken pay cuts during the pandemic with the private sector dragging the country through the crisis. Meanwhile those horrible bureaucrats in the NHS and local government have not taken a pay cut.
He is also saying that some NHS staff are more deserving than others.
There is even a case for giving some hospital staff a modest pay rise when this is all over. But I stress the word some.
He doesn't blame the government for all the cock ups it is all down to the bureaucrats
As this column has pointed out consistently, the performance of Public Health England has been woeful, bordering on criminally negligent.
The bloated health service bureaucracy was shockingly unprepared for the pandemic.
He has not bothered doing any research but he knows for a fact:
Do they all deserve to be described as 'heroes'? Yet they've escaped unscathed, financially at least, when compared with their counterparts in the private sector.

A quick glance at the Local Government Chronicle shows that a number of councils have furloughed a third of their staff.
He knows exactly which council employees need to take a pay cut.
How many compliance officers, diversity monitors and climate change advisers have been told they'll have to tighten their belts to help keep down next year's council tax bills?
He also has a predictable rant about the Mayor of London blaming him for all the capitals transport woes.
