ITNet sacked!

After 2 years of benefits chaos, Hackney Council has given bungling benefits company ITNet the boot.

The 10 year contract worth £70 million was terminated last week amid scenes of back-slapping from the Labour group. Clearly they feel that they’ve got something to celebrate.

While the IWCA is glad to see the back of ITNet and its money-grabbing attempt to clear up at the expense of working class residents, we’d also like to point out that it was Hackney Council who put them there, Hackney Council who ignored complaints about their service right from the beginning and Hackney Council who are now apparently celebrating a job well done.

Until we get councillors who actually represent working class people in the borough we’re bound to have a repeat of performances like this.

We’ve got rid of ITNet , now let’s get rid of these councillors.
