Sadly this book addresses none of the issues.,
This review is from: Plundering the Public Sector: How New Labour are Letting Consultants run off with £70 billion of our Money (Paperback)
This is an extraordinary book. It is a classic example of the worst tabloid journalism. Start with a view and then string together partial facts, sweeping generalisations, misleading use of statistics and conclude the answer you want.
There are very important questions to be answered about the use of consultants within the public sector but sadly this book addresses none of them.
I enjoyed reading the book but because it is funny not informative.

Is it possible for Ben Dillistone to highlight some of the "very important questions to be answered about the use of consultants within the public sector"?

K. Mcnulty says:
Is Ben related to the Ben Dillistone who was previously the captain of the both the Deloitte Consulting and the Cap Gemini Consulting yacht entry in the Industry Sailing Challenges? If he does have some professional opinion or insight on what the real issues are perhaps he could have shared them?

I wonder if (A) this reviewer has actually read the book, (B) what he means by 'the worst tabloid journalism' and (C) what is so funny about tens of billions of taxpayers money being passed from New Labour to the friends of New Labour in order to provide bad non-solutions to the problems of the public services?
I have worked in the NHS during the whole of the period under review, and I know what I saw-big money blown on gimmicks and little to show for it.
New LAbour were elected by spin and they governed by spin, that is the story of this book and I found it well supported by facts and figures.
