Outsourcing Madness

Trust the BBC to come up with a particularly absurd example of the privatisation craze. Many jobs in the corporation’s human resources department are being “outsourced” to notoriously incompetent and anti-worker contractor Capita. But staff who are worried about this can contact a special helpline set up by BBC bosses, for the good of their mental health (isn’t that kind?)

A couple of problems with this, apart from the obvious. Firstly, workers worried about Capita will have to be referred to the help line by their (Capita) managers. Secondly, the helpline has itself been “outsourced” and will be run by… Capita!
