How New Labour has ripped off taxpayers for billions

The Telegraph: Monday view

For years it has seemed that our Government has been intent on turning itself into UK plc, with departments filing annual audited accounts (many of which are rejected by their own auditors), treating taxpayers as customers and even hiring (yes, sorry, I'm going to write it) consultants.

The question is whether this activity has been at the taxpayers' expense. The jury is out here, but there are plenty of indications that the taxpayer is losing out, particularly over the way companies involved in private finance initiative projects have made billions for themselves.........

Companies, like fish, rot from the head down. This Labour Government is little different...........
