[Rotten to the] Core?

The BC government has announced a Core Review of itself. Select highlights, and translations:

Confirming government’s core responsibilities and eliminating programs that could provide better service at less cost through alternative service delivery models

Translation: That’s privatization! Step right up, select friends of the B.C. Liberal Party entrepreneurs ! Government assets ARE ON SALE NOW AT DISCOUNT PRICES!

Ensure public-sector management wage levels are appropriate while recognizing the need for leaders who can positively impact the effectiveness and productivity of public-sector agencies.

Translation: We will squeeze the rank and file to the bone, but continue to pay CEOs lavishly. Because, takers and makers, bitch. Neener, neener.

UPDATE: On the latter point, please see Norm and Ross. Please.
