lol,yes you are right the PS is so efficient that they decide to outsource to the private sector, they made a mess of it, case proven the PS is great and the private sector is rubbish. Awesome argument.
We are legally compelled to pay taxes which pays for the PS which employs lots of staff, that's a fact.
The current approach suits you fine that is clear, but the PS is inefficient and needs modernising. Introducing competition for service contracts & reducing the masses of state employees would improve efficiency.
Sorry, I did think you were being serious there.
You know the contract I'm talking about do you? Where the NHS priced the contract at £x million but were not allowed to bid for it, so it in the interests of efficiency and value for money it went to the private sector at 20% more than we priced it at. And they still failed to provide the service so under the terms of the contract, they were dropped with no compensation. How does this amazing private sector of which you talk deal with suppliers who fail to meet their contractural expectations?
And what is this legal requirement to employ public sector staff?
We are legally compelled to pay taxes which pays for the PS which employs lots of s[/b]taff, that's a fact.
We pay taxes so we have
to employ public sector staff to use all that money? **** me, that's novel.
Well anyway, let's modernise, shall we, let's get competitive like the banks. Why does this threqad exist? Because the (private sector) banks screwed up so collosally that we are in unimaginable levels of debt. Still, I'm sure St Fred of Goodwin is struggling with his £750,000 a year pension, agreed by his (private sector) former employers. Bet he's the man to fix the public sector.
