The whole PFI/PPP think stunk to high heaven and why labour got behind it when in office befuddled me. Scotland was used as a leader in this
initiative and has a disproportionate amount of these crazy contacts. The authorities need to grow some proverbial and renegotiate the contracts.

Then you have these sorts of shoddy deals that turn round and bite you.

PPP was a wizard wheeze whereby schools and other public buildings were built by business and then leased back to local authorities for oodles of
Teachers at the time pointed out the folly of paying for something over and over again while compromising on room sizes etc.
Well, blow me down, now they are not even safe and can be ...blown down. Who'dathunkit.
Now, to be frank, local authority heads should roll because they examined the plans and the works before accepting the builds. Someone, somewhere has
been shoddy and incompetent.
Unless, of course, this is about politics and not safety.
