Link to The Guardian

"The council chief executive responsible for implementing the Conservatives' radical 'easyCouncil' vision of privatised local authority services has quit to lead a Labour-led borough.

"Nick Walkley, boss of the London borough of Barnet, announced his resignation on Thursday night, plunging into doubt the leadership of the Conservative-controlled council's programme of selling off services including cemeteries, transport, planning and environmental health.

"Contracts worth an estimated £1bn are in the process of being let to the private sector and decisions were due to be made in the coming months, with British Telecom, Capita and EC Harris among the companies in the running to take over.
