Coppers couples may be in jeopardy, but the public sector’s Secret Santa is better than Britain’s anarchy

When it comes to pixies, Michael McGrath is pretty up there with Old St Nicholas. The current finance minister left a welcome gift in the Christmas stockings of all public sector workers in his final act as Minister for Public Expenditure. His retrospective pay rise, which hit pay packages just before the bank holidays, netted a few hundred pounds more at a favorable time of year.

The bonus payment for 370,000 public sector workers came on the assumption of a 6.5 percent public sector pay rise over the next year. The first 3pc kicked in late in the year, but the benefit has been backdated to February. Then another 2 pieces come in March, followed by 1.5 pieces in October.
