Cameron promises to spread corruption ever further into public services

Look at this:

David Cameron will herald new moves to open up public services to private providers when he hails the role of “insurgent companies” and speaks of the benefit of “breaking state monopolies”.

In a speech outlining the government’s approach to the autumn spending review, in which George Osborne will outline £20bn of cuts, the prime minister will cite children in care services and prisons as “standout areas” for reform.

The prime minister will say that government is not unlike a business. He will stress that he is not seeking to turn Whitehall into a business, but will say there is a need to reform public services: “What energises many markets are new insurgent companies, who break monopolies and bring in new ways of doing things. We can apply this thinking to government.

“Open up public services to provide providers?” You’d have to be a loonie (like Dave) to think that was a good idea.

In reality, he’s looking for new troughs into which his fellow piggies can stuck their ever-expanding snouts.

Privatising children’s care services and prisons won’t mean an improvement in standards – we all know that from looking at previous privatisations. How’s your water supply, now that so many reservoirs have been sold to foreign companies? How’s all that cheap gas and electricity we were promised back in the day? Not very cheap really, is it?

To This Writer, it seems that privatising children’s care services is the equivalent of holding up a banner saying “It’s paedophile playtime!” No doubt nobody reading this would be surprised by such a thought.

As for private prisons – don’t we have those already? And how well have they turned out?

The UK could not afford to let this man and his party back into office in May.

What a shame it may take until 2020 for people to realise that. Hindsight is always clearer.

    Children’s homes are already paedophile playgrounds I know I lived the nightmare for 12 years. When I was 15 I tried to kill myself because of the nightmare!!!

    They will stop at nothing until we the public have nothing, noses in the trough yet again an absolute hypocrisy “Party of the people” my butt.

    I have six bags of pig feed left since the pigs have gone, maybe could send down to the HOC keep their trough half full for a week or to I suppose after I have dosed it.

    Having said that with that many snouts may only last one day.

    Systematically ripping our once proud country apart whilst we sit back and watch and suffer the dire consequences.

    One wonders why they wont allow journalists into our prisons.

    If the child care services mirror the poor quality currently being dished out for privatised old folks homes etc then there will probably be many more vulnerable young people roaming the streets at the mercy of god knows who. The State makes a big thing of taking kids into their care now but is unable to look after them properly and safely. Outsourcing/privitisation has its place but long term the initial savings are just a sprat to catch the golden mackeral. Eventually the same accountants will make the brilliant suggestion it will be cheaper to run these nationalised services etc in-house rather than to profiteers………..

    Tories are not interested in anything that they personally cannot profit from. They begrudge spending money on our public services, but as soon as they privatise it they can’t spend on it quickly enough – mainly because they and their chums are profiting at our expense. Corruption, corruption and yet more corruption.
