DJ360 6,385 Posted January 25 Report Share Posted January 25 Please open this link: https://westcountryvoices.co.uk/children-in-care-big-business-for-international-investors/ This links to something called West Country Voices, which in turn quotes the Financial Times, in a report into the ownership of Children's Homes, by foreign owned companies. The Times spells out the obscene profits being made by these companies, and how much they are charging cash strapped local authorities to 'Care for' vulnerable children. (It seems typically £250000 p.a., PER CHILD!!) This is what the the obsession with Privatisation has led to. This is not what Thatcher promised and although I detested her both for what she stood for, and as a person, I'm convinced she would be appalled at what is being done in her name. This is not Economic Policy for the benefit of the electorate. This is LEGALISED THEFT, leading to INCREASED COSTS and ABUSE OF CHILDREN. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
