At least the Chief Executive won’t suffer

Thanks to UNISON for pointing out that scrapping the EMA (see “Back to the Barricades”) will cost up to £40m in penalties for ending the contract with Capita. For those who don’t know, Crapita (as Private Eye calls them without being sued) is a big private firm which has specialised in taking over ‘outsourced’ public sector functions and doing them much less well.

Vulnerable kids will no longer get a few lousy quid to encourage them to stay on at school, but Crapita will still trouser a big chunk of taxpayers’ money. So that’s all right then.

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
