Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know if it has reached any english press, but as it turns out the new big hospital in Stockholm was built as a Public-Private Partnership. And as it turns out, not only is the price tag looking like the most expensive hospital ever, another way the private investors are squeezing the county council is by having a monopoly on adjustments.

Need to put in a sink? 2000 euros. Need to rebuild a door so it is also an emergency exit 120 000 euros. And so on.

As always, the public pays and the private cashes in. That is what partnerships are all about.
