I feel suitably chastened by a comment on my last post which reminded me that some local voters have got together and produced a website intended to stimulate interest in the local elections in my fair Borough of Lambeth
As the people behind the website put it…
Fair play to these people for caring and trying to make a difference. Me, I’ve had the dubious experience of working for a few London Councils in the not super distant past and I believe that the entire system is a whorehouse.
Maybe one day a few of us can get together, tear the whole thing down and start from scratch.
I doubt it though. The process of turning every service that was once controlled by elected, accountable politicians over to companies like Equita, Capita, Omni Consumer Products, and all the rest, rolls inexocerably on and on.
In the meantime…
