On the failures of Closing The Gap

The money that is being pumped into it must be accounted for. This is the problem with taxpayer funding, too many people think that they can charge huge fees and it doesn’t matter. The employment “support” networks are another example, -- many are actually private bodies functioning within a sales consultancy philosophy, but playing along as a “public service” entity, which means these companies are being given huge amounts of our money often for doing diddly squat and even when they’re shown up for their dishonesty the government does nothing.
