I fail to see how a non-policeman can take charge of the Island Police Force, but I accept that a civilian can run the Border Agency. A shame this has come up in this way, the next two months will be difficult for the two guys to say the least. This smacks of yet more Capita-inspired "savings" under the Financial Transformation Programme and if their past record is anything to go by is likely to be yet another abject failure. I await the results of the tender process this company has instigated for the outsourcing of Beau Sejour, I dread to think where that one will lead. The Financial Transformation Programme will be debated in 2013 and I will be very interested to see if the targets have been met, I would wager a few quid that they haven't. Accountants can always come up with ways of saving money but they often ignore the practicalities of their suggested course of action. The Capita team will move on to their next contract but we will have to live with the results of their efforts. Gawd help us !
