A source sent us the above template for the Wirral Council tender for Wirral Business Support Services :“The costings for delivery of the Wirral Business Support Services is an astonishing £1.3m. Why can’t this be delivered by the highly paid officers already employed there?”
To which we can only reply : because that’s not they’re paid for. The highly paid officers at Wirral Council are remunerated so handsomely to systematically dismantle our public services. Why should they care if there are no public services left?. They’d have been paid a heap of cash by then. What’s more why should they care if the outsourced services prove to be inefficient ,poor quality and cripplingly expensive ? – they’ve got a pension pot to protect them from the consequences . A pension pot they can top up by sitting on the board of the companies that benefited from the fire sale of public services !
If you want to see where all this ends look at ‘Community Care . An ideologically driven and under funded government initiative that twenty years after its implementation has led to the current crisis in social care where local authorities have been given extra powers to raise money via Council Tax to cover spiralling costs of increasingly poor services………
But why should our public service potentates be concerned with jam for everyone tomorrow when they can have jam for themselves today?
