MISUSE OF TAXPAYER FUNDING

A4e is one company among many which has made huge profits from the contracting out of public services. Some, like Capita, have concentrated on "back-office" services which involve systems more than people. A4e, however, has made its money from contracts which deal directly with people - the poorest people in the country.
That's not how they put it, of course. They are "improving people's lives". That claim must be examined. They say that they're about "public service reform". You can read all this rubbish on their own website. the Conservatives began the outsourcing of public services, enabling them to sack civil servants and "reduce the size of the state". This has brought no benefit to the public, and it has transferred taxpayers' money, in vast quantities, into private hands. In A4e's case, this means the hands of one person, who has become a very wealthy woman. Money intended to provide services to the those most in need goes instead into the bank account of Emma Harrison. This is now considered normal. We challenge that.

      People work for nothing as Emma Harrison creams it in. Not right.

      Government is implicated in the rampant spread of unforgivable criminal activities that siphon public funds into private & corporate pockets. The legislature has betrayed the common folk by all manner of means especially revenue raising hitting non-bonus earners, the most vulnerable citizens, carers and anyone excluded from the cronies club.

      Taxpayers should be very worried about this as the Government try to abolish the minimum wage through the backdoor, by the expansion of the work-fare scheme. Soon the unemployed will be doing your job and you will be waiting to join the 'work programme' and maybe get your job back on £71 a week or £2.65 an hour. Great advice here at consent.me.uk for those having to see a welfare to work provider, make sure you visit the CONSENT website BEFORE you sign anything with any provider.
