Is it a conflict of interest to allow civil servants to collect taxes?

Civil servants have an incentive to increase central and local government taxes to save their own skins i.e.rendundancies/pay rises.

What do the 4M poblic sector workers do who are not in front line services?

Would we acually miss whole departments being closed?

Should we have an independent body which assesses the work/value of public sector departments?
