I've just read a piece on the BBC website about the strain repaying PFI projects is putting on the budget of NHS Trusts.
There is of course some political point-scoring going on, but honestly who can say that they didn't see this coming? PFI was obviously an ill-conceived idea from the beginning with controversy engulfing one of the first PFI's the Skye Bridge project which George Monbiot pointed to in his widely read 2001 Book 'Captive State; The Corporate Take Over of Britain'
Now the doubters have been proved right, but governments and local authorities still shock in their ability not to take heed of the facts when it comes to policy.
