Thanks for this post, Michael, which has brought immense clarity on a very ideologically charged subject.

Coming to today's news regarding the shift in policy regarding sick-pay.

What I can't understand is how IBEC are claiming that sick leave costs business 1.5 billion a year, while the changes announced by government will only save 150 million. Is there are similar dynamic at work on this issue as with the phoney claims about welfare fraud?
