MOD slammed by MPs

Question is, will it change anything.

Now Joe Public knows how their taxes are being wasted and the catalogue of errors are there listed, for all to see.

But it's supposed to be an exciting week on Coronation Street so it will be mostly forgotten and in answer to the question of whether it will change anything.

Will anyone be brought to account for these disasters? Thought not.

What really bugs me is the nonsense that these contracts are run on "Commercial" terms. The few poeople in green are persuaded by the civil service that "we are following industry", this is the process, etc etc. Total rubbish. In any civilian company i've ever worked for our "commercial" colleagues would have been shown the door long since as complete wasters.

A whole pile of these clowns should be sacked. Far too many self sucking lolly-pops out there, who have forgotten that the bottom line is tommy on the gound, well prepared and with the right kit.

The other thing that bugs me is people in green looking for gold-plate solutions and paying way over the odds as a result. How much did each Wolf cost when an off the shelf Defender 110 would have delivered 99% of the same effect ?
the "MoD seems to have given the lead contractor on the programme an open-ended cheque book".
The new MoD motto, has carried on for the longest time, unfortunately not surprised.

The MPs also criticised the MoD for losing £147 million on a building at the Atomic Weapons Establishment Aldermaston which eventually simply could not be used because it was not fit for the purpose it was built for.

The MPs said they were "amazed" at the scale of the loss, and added: "MoD's acknowledgement that the project was 'handled badly' is a considerable understatement."
Amazed?! Same shit, not surprised.

The committee also pointed out the MoD - whose annual report and accounts they were monitoring - had met only three of its seven Public Service Agreement targets, and was in breach of so-called Harmony Guidelines designed to give service personnel sufficient time off for training and to spend with their families between deployments.
Not surprised. The MoD as a whole waste more than they produce. Agree with mistersoft and speedy, no nowt will change.
