PFI – The 4 States of Mind

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...

  1. You believe it's bad, but sit on the fence because you want to stay employed – this is the hypocritical state
  2. You believe it's necessary, but are afraid of getting lynched if you defend it – this is the cowardice state
  3. You believe it's good, but realise it makes you sound like a banker – this is the self loathing state
  4. 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?

We exist to give you the competitive edge in a tough marketplace.
