The Information Commissioner has declared sensible questions regarding PFI school safety as "vexatious". Whose side is he on? I often wonder.
Comments from this article:-
"The 'excuse' is that PFI delivers a better product, faster, at a better price. Faster and at a better price is no doubt achievable, but thinking you will get a better product is to display naivety on an epic scale. As soon as you factor in profit, then you guarantee corner cutting. What I do know for sure (from somebody involved in PFI projects) is that PFI procurement is a farce and lots of people get opportunities to stick their snout in the trough. Bet that comes as a surprise."
