Re: No positive comments above re outsourcers
Whereas public organisations' primary objective is to serve the public
Bwahahahahahahahahaa! What a load of shit. Remember those champions of service and quality, like the GPO, British Leyland, CEGB, British Rail, British Steel, British Aerospace and the rest? I have worked in the public sector, and I can assure you that the primary objective was to not make any decision, and to dodge any accountability. Some decades later, my wife has moved from NHS to Civil Service, and is horrified by the fact that the primary objective is still to not make any decision, and to dodge any accountability.
And looking at the shambles so many councils make of everything they touch, like planning, road maintenance, waste collection, safeguarding, you STILL think that the public sector's primary objective is to serve the public? Sorry, but no.
