The razor gang starts

But as dozens of Beehive staffers watched the results roll in, they were also watching job prospects shrinking.

As many as 37 press secretaries face the loss of their jobs and many others, including ministerial advisers, office receptionists and personal assistants, may go too.

Great! 2 days in and already spin merchants are feeling the sharp edge. Won't take long to reach a healthy 10% cut as a starter.
