The Future Shape of Barnet Council - A glimpse of the nightmare

My advice to anyone who thinks the future shape project is a good idea. Google the following

Connaught Administration

This company was a "chosen partner" of Barnet Council. Workers transferred to this organisation, workers who now have no idea what the future holds for them. Residents of Barnet Homes face uncertainty over vital maintenance work.  So why are the workers and the tenants having to suffer this uncertainty? Because companies like Connaught are only interested in "Easycash". As soon as there is any element of risk, they pull the plug and leg it, saying "screw the consequences". This isn't without precedent, Metronet is another example of a PPP failure where they made hay whilst the sun shined and then legged it when times got tough.

Sadly Barnet Council have learned nothing
