A non-political organisation called Reform has released a report accusing Tony Blair of pumping billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money into an inefficient public service.
According to The Daily Telegraph the report says government is taking in an increasing amount of tax in proportion to the national income without improving education, health and public transport services.
Head of Reform’s advisory board, GSK chairman Sir Christopher Gent, said the results showed that modern services could not be delivered by simply pouring in extra money.
‘We cannot go on transferring resources from the efficient and productive private sector into monopolistic, unproductive public services,’ he was reported as saying.
