Rubbish, £Billions in contacts and Peerages far outstrip anything that your average public servant can backhand.

Yet we are supposed to accept that Bozo can take whatever he likes from people and not be beholden to them. The PM of The U.K. should be beyond reproach, regardless of who or what party they represent.

Hey me little uniformed mate, take a look at what happens elsewhere in the real world.
Just 21 short sea miles from Dover, do you see any difference at all in this situation?


You can probably use Google Translate if you wish, but if you had an enquiring mind (which clearly you do not by virtue of your current specialisation) then you may find that the situation in the UK is not unique.
And maybe even that Boris is not unique.

Lots of contracts being awarded on the hoof in response to a fluid situation and on the hurry-up in this kerfuffle over the last year or so.
No due diligence needed, the decision was taken that it would have taken too long when people are dying.

And all around the rest of the world such things happened outside of Hampshire too.

It is called life.

Excellent post.
To which, all too often, comes the response: ‘I’m not interested in what happens elsewhere.’ (ie I only care about how it effects me.) A selfish and egotistic attitude.
People like the Simian Trempé would be surprised to learn the French for ‘selfish’ - as you well know - is ‘egoïste’.
In Italian it is ‘egoista’.

It’s good that The French feel able to imprison their ex presidents for corruption, eventually. Let’s see if it catches on.

Does this count as misleading Parliament?

Our good friends, the Lawfare experts at Good Law Project once again making a mountain out of a very, very small molehill

I wonder if Bozo just “misspoke”.
The failure of HMG was not to publish the contracts quick enough for a mandated timescale, rather than what was implied by some that they were deliberately hiding contracts away

"Government lawyers also confirmed that 482 out of 513 contract award notices - 94% of them - had been published outside the 30 days required by law."

This is quite understandable given the quantity and pace of issue, however, they have been publishing them as quick as they can work through the backlog, jumping on this just shows a lack of understanding/grandstanding by the opposition - in general, the contracts are there and the backlog will be published in due course when time and resources allow

So why didn’t he just say that instead of bullshitting?
Because they are on the record with more being added all the time dimwit

Why don’t you send him an email* asking that very question - Johnson probably doesn’t confide in too many subscribers to this website.

Did I ever suggest that you should grow up?



*contact details are available - get a grown up to help you locate them.

I've said this before but back at the start of the plague the company I work for took on several urgent supply contracts. All without tender and all on a simple agreement of supply at X price.

Many of these contracts where instigated with delivery taking place at less than 48 hours from intial contact

Had we all gone by the normal tender process it would have taken up to six months

It fed the people who needed feeding and it kept us afloat for the first few months while things looked pretty grim

The absolute truth of the vast majority of these supply contracts were extremely urgent and simply given to any company who could fulfil the need.
In my view, in the extraordinary circumstances faced early last year HMG did the only thing it could and buy from whoever could supply.
