You could not have written it.
G4S, one of the biggest companies to whom government departments have outsourced multi-million pound contracts – for every conceivable form of security – could now be investigated by the Serious Fraud Office concerning claims of multi-million pounds worth of fraud.
The alleged fraud even manages to include charges for tagging dead prisoners. It goes to the very core of modern government in which politicians of all stripes have sought to disengage their departments from any form of direct labour, through massive outsourcing.
Justice Minister Chris Grayling could only find the word “astonishing” to express his sentiment. It started as long ago as 2005, maybe earlier, and so both Labour and the coalition governments are in the frame.
Some of the people that were being billed WERE DEAD!!! 😛
TOO MUCH … LOL!!!
These are the people that are replacing us!
