Policy wonks call for 250,000 redundancies

A think tank in the UK has called on the government to fire 250,000 public sector workers and use automation technology instead. 

The Reform group released a report in which it says that the government is excessively bureaucratic and inefficient.

Although similar ideas are being floated in the US, there seems no general public discussion about subject.

US President Donald Trump has, however, ordered a freeze on hiring for all civilian departments of the government.
