Someone who appears to be Boris Johnson is standing at a lectern with the word “Serco” on it. He is saying “We’re giving billions to Serco to track and trace the billions we already gave them.” Behind him is someone who looks like Dominic Cummings, standing under a sign that reads: Serco – your money, our profits.

    1. The Government say they have spent over £150 BILLION on PPE since the start of the Covid outbreak. Considering the Aircraft carriers cost approx £8 billion each (max) and that that little purchase kept 20,000 people (skilled) fully employed for 6 years. I thought that £150 Billion sounded way over the top. So I am doing some homework. The Gov publish the PPE distribution figures weekly, from 25th Feb to present, well 18th October are the latest. During that period they have distributed 635,036,471 LLR face masks and 2,605,070,767 Gloves (counted in singles strangely enough) I have costed at the most expensive I could find, the cost for these items £158,759,117.75 for the masks and £169,329,550.00 for the gloves. A grand total of £328,088,677.00. That only leaves £146,719,111,323.00 to spend on the remaining items. I think that somebody is doing some stealing, don’t you?
