Like many people I have closely followed the Olympic Security issue since it became headline news earlier this month. Whilst I am unimpressed by the way G4S have handled the contract, supported by many of the statements made today by Nick Buckles of G4S, I can't help but feel they had been set an almost "mission impossible" based not only on the numbers to be recruited but also the geographical area to be covered. I actually think some the key questions not asked publicly are: a. Who authorised a single contractor to deliver the security of the Olympics, especially when the numbers required were raised from 2,000 to 10,400? b. Why was it considered unnecessary to spread the work over a variety of contractors based in the towns/cities that are delivering the Olympics? Just a few thoughts!
