The issue is not so much the 7.5% increase per se, but the fact it was imposed with no warning period.
What I find interesting is the increasing trend for groups to be more assertive against the Government, as they calculate the probability of a change is likely, so the fear of retribution is reduced. We see school principals going to Close Up as another example. Something which would never have happened I suspect in earlier years. The same thing happened in 1999.
