Unions told the Government to brace itself for French-style street protests last night after the Chancellor confirmed that half a million public sector jobs will be axed.
Militant bosses said the paring back of the state payroll would spark the kind of ‘resistance’ that has led to outbreaks of violence across the Channel.
George Osborne told MPs that 490,000 jobs are expected to be lost, but stressed they would be weeded out over a period of four years.
The Chancellor said that ‘natural turnover’ would account for many of the reductions, with posts left empty when employees decide to leave.
One in 12 civil servants moves on every year.
