Privatisation, rather than public sector co-operatives, will see services run better and cheaper
Mark Littlewood comments on the latest education proposals
Dr Steve Davies says the latest reforms do not go far enough
Mark Littlewood calls for a radical restructure
Mark Littlewood said:
“Funding people to buy out their own places of work, and then continuing to pay their wages is not an ideal model for public services.
“We need to ensure that consumers, not producers, are given more power and control. That requires embracing privatisation.
“The £10m fund is small change in the context of the gargantuan budget deficit this government is attempting to slash, but it is still another £10m spent on a state-run scheme.”
