Now - what will happen about the proposed library opening times changes? Ridiculous suggesting Saturday closures - the one day when workers can actually get to their local library!! At least the councillors at the Scrutiny meeting agreed on that. (See news article)
So - how is the campaign going? And what other opinions are out there?
At least merging services with other boroughs is a better way than privatisation, from a democratic point of view. More privatisation will lead to less accessibility of information under the Freedom of Information Act, which only covers public organisations. So it will be much more difficult to uncover fraud and find out exactly what goes on in outsourced services. (See article by Ryan Gallagher)
