PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Is Capita wobbling too? Just another reason to end local privatisation

23 April 2018

A few months after the collapse of Carillion, outsourcing giant Capita seems to be wobbling. We completely rely on this company to deliver vital public services and now it’s reporting financial losses.
 
These companies are too big to fail. When they do, the public sector takes the RISK and deals with the CHAOS while the private shareholders walk away with the profit. And that’s just one reason why they shouldn’t be running our public services. Others include:
  • COST: many councils are ending or not renewing contracts with private providers to save money
  • QUALITY: many councils are insourcing to improve services
  • FLEXIBILITY: private companies charge more for any changes over time
  • ACCOUNTABILITY: it’s very difficult to hold private companies accountable
And then of course, there are the many, many failures of privatised services in practice – which we’ve documented in our resource, #PrivatisationFails
 
Local council services are vital resources for our communities. Most of us use them every day, from bins to buses, from libraries to leisure centres. They’re too important to hand over to profit-driven private companies.
 
Let’s end local privatisation.
 
ASK YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL TO SIGN THE PLEDGE TO END LOCAL PRIVATISATION
