Divine intervention and the Key welfare agenda

by Sue Bradford

Comments from the Prime Minister suggest that the government’s willingness to act

tough on welfare may go a lot further than many expect.

What is the real Key agenda on welfare reform?

It could be a lot scarier than media commentators and the public think.

Where’s the Government ‘review’ on  corporate welfare beneficiaries of public monies?

Given the $30 billlion central government expenditure on ‘procurement’ – where’s the evidence /’cost-benefit’ analysis that private procurement of public services is a more ‘cost-effective’ use of public monies than former ‘in-house’ provision by central (and local) government?

Where’s the ‘review’ of the use of  consultants and private sector contractors across all state sectors?

Wouldn’t it save a small fortune if those private ‘piggies in the middle’ were cut out of the public trough?

Isn’t it time to ‘CUT OUT THE CONTRACTORS’?
