You Scratch My Back, I'll...........
It's little wonder our "Civil Service" and politicians love outsourcing. This uncontrolled scam and corruption is a perfect opportunity to dish out multi-billion pound contracts in the certainty that post the Government sinecures, a nice little earner awaits. I suspect those sinecures might well carry a percentage of the largess nicely parceled up by the fraudsters in Whitehall and handed to their future employers.
That these "deals" cost the tax payer billions in slush funds, incompetence and stupidity, hardly matters when the endless supply of tax revenues is handed over to unaccountable, bordering on thieving, Mandarins. Not only do these despots court the powerful, in order to transfer from one gravy train to the next, they are, as often as not, also handed knighthoods and peerages.
Despite criticism, from time to time, we all know full well that such is the incestuous bonds binding Mandarin and politician to the contractors used, nothing will ever change. It should be simple to ban those ever having decision making powers, whilst in Government, from ever benefiting from contracts and influence in how major deals are struck from ever benefiting, personally once they leave office.
Surly the Civil Service could help draft rules, for their political masters, curtailing the opportunities discussed. I;m sure such altruism would be welcomed by all those not able to gain these perks. Hang, on that's turkeys voting for Christmas. Quelle surprise nothing is done. Still shows what an immoral lot our powers that be are these days. Particularly on the Millionaires row that is the Labour front Bench! Not forgetting their time in Office.
