(not satire – it’s the UK today!)
The coalition government has decided to outsource thousands of civil service jobs in the DWP, Defra and Environment Agency to a French firm called Steria.
You’ve probably not even heard of Steria but they’re an up and coming outsourcing company which promises to save organisations money by providing “a flexible model built on offshore service delivery” (Steria’s own words).
In Steria’s case, “offshore service delivery” means moving jobs to its massive offshore ‘global delivery centres‘ which are located in Noida, Pune and Chennai in India, Katowice in Poland and Casablanca in Morocco.
This shipping of British jobs abroad should be a big scandal – but it won’t be.
It should also be something both the Right and Left are united in condemning. But it won’t be.
It won’t be for the simple fact that – with the exception of the unions involved – very few people seem to know anything at all about it.
As usual in the UK today – we have to rely on alternative sources of media to spread the word about what is really happening in Britain.
