£9million of taxpayers’ money went to ‘offshore tax haven’ through Islington Council’s out-sourced housing deals

From PFI article in ISLINGTON GAZETTE this week

Between 2012 and 2018, JLIF which invested in 65 PFI and Public Private Partnership schemes around the world, had pre-tax profits of £526.1m but paid only paid £2.1m (or 0.4pc) in UK tax. Academic and housing campaigner Stuart Hodkinson, whose 2019 work Safe As Houses scrutinies the “corporate greed” of PFI schemes, estimates the total contract value of PFI 1 is £357m, while PFI 2 is said to be worth £421.3m.

Dr Brian Potter, chair of Islington Leaseholders Association, led a campaign to stop the PFI deals in the early 2000s. He argues offshore or tax haven registered companies profiting from PFI deals, while not illegal, is “unethical” and “insidious”. He said: “This is one of the major problems with selling off contacts. Once you have sold the contract you have no control, so there is no quality control – nobody accepts responsibility for anything wrong with the original contract. You’re just left with a money spinning machine just eating money over the years. It was the worst council financing decision.”

Our Guests this month are Cllr Ward (Chair of Housing and development) and Mr Richard Powell (project manager for major works consultation), Cllr Ward assures me that he will be answering questions on all/any leasehold issues effecting Islington council leaseholders…Including those currently managed by “Partners for Islington” under the PFI 1 + 2 Contracts…

I am also advised that a reporter from the “Islington Gazette” will, (hopefully) be attending…

Attendee’s are advised to arrive early so we can address the maximum number of issues at this meeting…

Since this will be a unique opportunity to place your complaints / questions before the Chair of Housing (In public) it should not be missed… Please impress upon any leaseholders you know that it is in their interest to attend these meetings regularly, and get answers that you can rely upon…straight away…..
