It is established fact that in many areas of public expenditure the Labour government has provided record sums to renew our public infrastructure and we seen new schools, hospitals and public buildings across the UK. So the news we may have been ripped off in the same period just makes me feel depressed about the antics of those involved. The same monies might have provided more public facilities and school buildings etc.
No doubt many have also been involved with PFI and refinancing deals that my union, UNISON, has been working hard to evidence concerns.
Why a little depressed ?- they are in it for profit and should I not just accept it? No I think public money should be used for the intended purpose, not lining the pockets of construction companies.
