  1. Except in Barnet, where the local council “privatised’ the electoral register and contracted it out to Capita, or some such. Result? Omnishambles

    For more on Barnet’s “outsourcing”:

  2. As somebody who went to Barnet FE College for a year part-time to do my ‘O’ levels, when I was working as nurseryman aged 16 (plant nurseries that is), I keep a baleful eye on that foul council.

    Thanks Bijou, a hard job but I now hate them more I did before.

  3. Today there is this:

    BARNET ALLIANCE FOR PUBLIC SERVICES

    PRESS RELEASE

    Barnet Alliance for Public Services (BAPS) is horrified to learn that Capita, which runs services for Barnet council, have cancelled the Freedom Passes for a number of disabled residents, apparently without warning and with no legal basis.

    The council temporarily halted further cancellations, pending a review, only when complaints were raised by local bloggers.

    BAPS demands that all cancelled passes will be reinstated immediately and Capita’s actions be subject to an independent investigation.

  4. Whatever the nature of the local Labour Council, serious socialists must vote Labour, join Labour and fight for socialism. There is, quite simply, no other way.
