A wee word on Serco.
They operate in NZ and have this on their vacancies page (Justice and Immigration)
At Serco, you’ll be part of a team of more than 50,000 people delivering essential services on behalf of governments and organisations around the world. We apply world’s best practice, insights and technology across six key sectors: Citizen Services, Defence, Healthcare, Immigration, Justice and Transport.
Now here’s wee insight into how they ‘provide’ those essential services.
HUNDREDS of asylum seekers are to be locked out of their homes in a shock move officials fear will cause a humanitarian crisis on Scotland’s streets. A private firm housing thousands of refugees in Glasgow says it will start evicting up to 300 people who have been told they cannot stay in Britain. Serco will issue a first six “lock change” notices on Monday giving residents a week to get out with nowhere else to go.
Better then that, it seems that (and putting aside the fact winter’s not far away and asylum appeals take time to process) –
The council [Glasgow City] is barred from housing failed asylum seekers and charities who are legally allowed to do so simply lack the capacity to put so many people up.
Liberalism. Gotta love it.
The sooner the UK elects a Corbyn led Labour government that embraces social democratic sensibilities, the better. And the quicker NZ utterly rejects political parties that continue pandering to liberal sensibilities, and the more timely we are in getting well and truly off the path, that sooner or later, will have us wading through shite like that illustrated above,, the better it will be for us here too.
Public services being given out to private providers whose bottom line is always some financial bottom line is an abhorrence that has have no place in civilised society – None.
