Latest Conservative Home satisfaction rantings have Liz Truss significantly ahead of Rishi Sunak. Well done Liz and very well deserved. Dominic Raab leads Lord Frost by just 0.5%. Gavin Williamson succeeds in having a negative satisfaction rating of a fairly epic -43.6.

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.
Did you give any contracts to the manager of your local pub?
 
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.

"It's OK because the froggies do it" Best argument ever....<snigger>

I find it strange, that in the rush to get all those emergency contracts out, they seem to have magically landed in the hands of a very select bunch.

The Arrse irony meter has just exploded.
The irony meter wouldn't work on this thread, the thread has disappeared into an irony black hole and then gone through the looking glass. And back again.

Test and trace £37 bil...s'OK, nothing to see here.....

It appears so.

Posting the same tedious crap twice fails to make it any more worthwhile than when you first posted it - same dull item from the same left-wing Lawfare gobshite just reworded
