Dear Dave, where's our Big Society?

Dear Mr Cameron (or, if you prefer, Dave),

In Barnet the Conservative-led council wants to hand over delivery of most council services to a big private sector contractor, such as Centrica, where's our Big Society? And it stops residents asking the questions they want to ask councillors at their own forum (Chipping Barnet residents' forum, 20 July), where's our Big Society? And it has granted responsibility for the Brent Cross/Cricklewood regeneration (£4.5bn scheme) to one big company, Hammerson, where's our Big Society?

I could go on but I think you get the picture. This Barnet resident for one remains to be convinced that the Big Society you have just launched is anything more than a load of rhetoric to prettify public sector cuts. Am I wrong?

Yours sincerely,
Vicki Morris

Where's Dave'lefty Cameron's Big Society? In the little society of the financially comfortable of his own class. Has he openly criticised Barnet Councillors or the two men responsible for rolling out the Future Shape of Britain? trialled in Barnet
