Editorial excerpt | Break the taboo, speak openly about public sector cuts

It ought to be one of the ultimate conservative goals to speak openly about their goal of reducing the number of public sector employees.

Shrinking the public sector will not result in mass poverty, more unemployed or reduced levels of public service.

Doing so is, in fact, necessary if we are to avoid all of the above. [Leading opposition party] Venstre, however, won’t say this aloud. Instead they mumble something about “getting the most out of our tax money”.


That’s right, but if Denmark wants to be more competitive, we need a smaller public sector that has fewer employees.
