Yet More Financial Advice?

Barnet Council have decided they now need KPMG to give them financial advice. With a call off contract the council "does not expect to spend more than £500,000". Given that last year they spent:
- £538,508.23 on Grant Thornton;
- £202,426.07 on PricewaterhouseCoopers;
- £41,730.00 on Deloitte
as well as £1,000 a day on a chief financial officer I would blooming well hope they don't expect to spend half a million quid on yet more financial advice.

Reading the report it appears that the dreaded One Barnet is the driver for this additional advice. When will the Council give One Barnet the chop, stop wasting money on all these advisors and just focus on delivering great quality services efficiently.

  1. Once again Barnet are throwing a huge amount of our money away on something whose sole purpose we are told is to create savings, but has still, years into the programme, saved NOTHING, and only incurred further cost to us: and yet they still stand up at every council meeting and rant about the financial irresponsibility of Labour spending!
