Government rewarding incompetence

I think we can all agree that the government and their employees are doing a terrible job but civil servants are being paid £128 million in bonuses.

The National Audit Office has refused to approve the accounts of the treasury but civil servants in the Treasury still managed to receive £21 million in bonuses. Why are they getting this when in the private sector any business that couldn’t have its accounts signed off by auditors would be a failure?

It hasn’t been a particularly good year for the military but civil servants still managed to get £41 million in bonuses. All this is doing is paying for failure.
