    Now we are doing it to others.

    Top government ministers are being criticised for promoting 'rip-off' PFI schemes in impoverished countries.

    LONDON A new report from campaign group Jubilee Debt Campaign has condemned senior Conservative ministers for promoting "rip-off" schemes in impoverished foreign countries.

    Top ministers, it says, including Liam Fox, Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson, have all criticised Private Finance Initiative (PFI) schemes in the UK, yet their departments are actively promoting similar healthcare schemes in countries including Liberia, Sierra Leone and Zambia.

    Talk about being mealy-mouthed; when we see government minsters condemning PPP and PFI contracts here in Britain, but the exact same contracts are alright in the third world.

    They will try just about anything to support their privateer pals.

    The British government do not know where they stand on this issue as they are now against PPP and PFI contracts here in Britain while they are still pushing them abroad.

    Public opinion has changed their minds in Britain but they do not need to pay any attention to public opinion abroad. This means that they can STILL push their pals in the private sector where it will not come back on them.

    You are dead right there Zathrus.

    It is a perfect show of double standards to be against PPP and PFI contracts in Britain and yet to push them onto the poorest countries in the world.

    Typically Tory if you ask me.

    I somehow get exasperated how the Tories keep proving they are the nasty party.

    What they are doing here in some of the poorest countries in the world is outrageous.

    They are just being Tories my dear.

    I do not think they even know when they are being the "nasty party".

    One thing is pretty certain; after the damage that has been done by Theresa May and her cohorts the Tory Party will be virtually unelectable next time round.

    Many of the new hospitals in Britain were built under the aegis of PFI. Nasty Government backed rip off.

    There were two built in Scotland at the time and now we cannot get parked there without getting fined.

    The Scottish government are now very savvy when using private cash to pay for the building of public projects.
