By “open for business”, the analyst means the government is outsourcing public services – at a huge rate. The value of such contracts has risen from £9.6bn in 2008 to £20.4bn in 2012. Seymour Pierce estimates that public sector outsourcing could hit (deep breath) £101bn by 2014-15.’

    The Tory world-view is none of us deserve to live after our usefulness of being fleeced of a lifetime’s tax and NI. Not to mention multiple taxes on all other consumables.

    ‘Back to the workhouse days’ as in the recent case in Ireland exposes, for all of we sick and disabled and too old/poor to be of any consequence.

    Some of them have infiltrated the New Labory Party too, and we need a new constitution before a revolution is imminent!

    I wonder if they shall outsource the criminal courts and prison services when the time comes for us all to demand that the westminster sociopaths are brought to face convictions and prison terms for their culpability in the ongoing Atos suicides horror. I can just imagine the simpering cringe on Cameron’s face when he faces the prospect of a future sex life behind bars ij which the big bad boys will outsource his semen stained arse as a moaning condom.
