Suffolk changes direction - will Barnet?

One of the other councils that had been going down the path of mass outsourcing, after much political hoo-ha, has a new council leader (same party: Conservative). Mark Bee has announced the council is dropping its New Strategic Direction (NSD) programme.
“I do not believe the NSD as a concept has connected with the people of Suffolk, some politicians, partner organisations or indeed many of our staff.

“The people of Suffolk expect to be listened to and cared about.”
The council hasn't taken down the webpage outlining what NSD is yet though. Have a look. Sounds a lot like One Barnet? When will Barnet Conservatives see sense, as Suffolk Conservatives have done, and drop the One Barnet programme?
