Letter: Blair's public spirit

Sir: Unnecessary organisational change is what most of us working in the public sector have had to suffer over and over again. Real change - scrapping the internal market, ending the divisive "best value" competition and the false, unequal "partnership" with private, profit-making business, breaking the Tory spending limits - is what most of us actually want.

It is Blair and his 300 sycophants (many with public service backgrounds themselves) who are some of the most inflexible people we have ever come across, stuck in the (Tory) mud and offering no change at all.
