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.
Excellent post.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?

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.
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 awayI wonder if Bozo just “misspoke”.

"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
