'When I last looked at the Guardian it was full of job adverts for the BBC and the public sector.None of them need to advertise in the press, there's nothing to stop them putting up their own websites with their jobs on.Cost to taxpayer: next to nothing.Instead they'd rather spend our money subsidising the Guardian and jobs for their mates.The Guardian is already publicly funded by this large and generous subsidy. One again we have no choice about it.That's another tory fail. The tories are in power, they are the Government. It is about time they made a massive cut to their personnel advertising budget and instead only advertised jobs on their own .gov website.'
