The very same mainstream media who are spinning that Judith Collins was found innocent last year are now framing the decision to end the Serco contract at Mt Eden as the Government taking charge.
Here is what you are not being told:
- The Billion dollar private prison at Wiri is still being run by Serco
- Serco should never have been allowed to run Mt Eden in the first place.
- Serco is taking the Government to Court to hide the true awfulness of their time at Mt Eden
- and most revealingly – Serco has a long history of being corrupt and deceptive to the Governments they work for.
Serco, the leading private contractor to the government, has admitted that it presented false data to the NHS 252 times on the performance of its out-of-hours GP service in Cornwall.
The NHS Cornwall primary care trust (PCT) asked the company to audit itself following an investigation by the Guardian in May, in which several whistleblowers alleged the company was repeatedly so understaffed as to be unsafe and claimed that managers manipulated results when it failed to meet targets.
Serco and the PCT revealed the admission in separate statements on Thursday when a report for the PCT board published online highlighted this and a raft of other concerns about the privatised contract and how it was being run.
This move to end Serco’s contract at Mt Eden is just an attempt to cauterise the public prison wound National have caused.
