I like the PFI page of this site, Globalise Resistance .I'm not a Globalise Resistance supporter, but you have to admit they're mobilising a slick anti-PFI campaign. But where is the pro-campaign for PFI/PPP? No one sticks up for all the good that came out of PFI/PPP, and yet so many people continue to benefit from servicing the industry it generated. Why is that?
Four possible reasons, and why...
- You believe it's bad, but sit on the fence because you want to stay employed – this is the hypocritical state
- You believe it's necessary, but are afraid of getting lynched if you defend it – this is the cowardice state
- You believe it's good, but realise it makes you sound like a banker – this is the self loathing state
- You genuinely don't know what to think, but it can't be all that bad, can it? – this is the confused state
I think a lot of people involved in PFI/PPP are in the confused state, because if you're getting a new hospital built, isn't that a good thing?
Globalise Resistance are not exactly saying they don't want any more PFI/PPP; they just don't want it in its current manifestation. Isn't that what we all want?
