Is a vote for the Tories a wasted vote?

Eamonn Butler says the Tories look as though they are going to try to make government more efficient.

If Osborn hasn't even worked out that teaching a bureaucrat to be efficient is about as plausible as teaching a pig to sing, then we are in bigger trouble than even I had imagined.

That essentially means we have no-one to vote for if we want a smaller state. Even the Conservative party is no longer dedicated to small-state economics.

I bet it was like this in Sweden for much of the last century.

The problem is that those people who want to see a smaller state dare not spell out that this would entail the sacking of somewhere between thirty and fifty percent of public empoyees.
I say this as a retired public sector worker.
As the Tories are aware turkeys do not vote for christmas.
Que faire?

Just to be clear I actually don't want the sacking of 30% - 50% of public sector workers, I want the sacking of 90 to 98 percent of them.

I like to think that he is just making nice to ensure an election victory, but deep down he knows what is really required... and starts slashing burn the very morning they get in.
