  1. Security firm lands MoD job three months after John Reid joins as a consultant
    From Saturday's Daily Mail
    Former Defence Secretary John Reid faced fierce criticism yesterday as it emerged the world's largest security firm had won a huge contract from the Ministry of Defence weeks after taking him on as a consultant.

    Mr Reid - who ran the MoD until May 2006 before resigning from the Cabinet while Home Secretary in June 2007 - was hired by G4S three months ago for £50,000 a year to offer 'strategic advice'.

    This week, it was awarded a four-year contract to supply private security guards for around 200 MoD and military sites across Britain in a deal thought to be worth tens of millions of pounds.
  2. Oh well who would have saw that coming.

    Next thing you know Tony Blairs missus will be getting involved in a cash cow of a class action suit against the branking brass.

  3. Nothing surprising there from a sh"te paper. You ll find most MPs are consultants to private companies.
  4. I think its about time that when people are elected as MPs, that is their ONLY job. How can they be concentrating full time on running a Government if theyre off prancing around boardroom tables as consultants.

    As for all this two houses and expenses malarkey, build a fekkin corimec city out the back of Westminster!
