The government are trying to privatise our fire service by putting profits before saving lives.50000 signatures are needed to stop this happening.Don"t let this happen to our fire service.

Just as an add on to this, it's not a scare story or anything it's real! The FBU have seen a leaked document saying the above....

This is from an article in the daily mirror on the 8th feb regarding the privatisation of the fire service. Prior post I misspelt the first epetitions

Incidentally, I see from the weekly newspaper that the Fire Brigade now charge 25 for servicing domestic fire alarms: it used to be free.

Thats the start of it. the government want to stop the free smoke detectors and the free fire safety advice that the fire service offers .If privatisation happens.not only will the fire service as we know it, be lost forever.it will be outsourced to private companies, and we have seen what has happened in the past to other services that have gone this way.

If they could buy back all the firms, resources etc that had been sold off to private enterprises (by various govs)and ran them like private enterprises do, just think how much less we'd be paying out or how much the government would get instead of lining the pockets of those investors who seem to have the cash to spare.

If the government could really run things as cost-effectively as the private sector does, then you might have a point. Unfortunately, this does not ever seem to have been borne out, historically. Most governments it seems can barely run themselves, let alone businesses! (Not that I agree with privatising the Fire Service, btw, because I don't).
