It is clear that G4S is not a company that is fit to benefit from UK government work contracts.

I suggest that, not because of the story quoted below, but because of this one.

And this one.

And this one.

And this one.

And this one.

And this one.

And this one.

And this one.

Some commentators thought there must be a connection between government ministers and G4S shareholders – but that seems not to be the case.

So that leaves us with the question: Why does the Conservative government keep employing these utter incompetents?

Is it because they want to sabotage the services that G4S provides?

For the sake of privatisation?

But, if privatised, how would the service get better? We know that private providers are utterly inept!

Global security giant G4S faced a record £2.8m of fines for breaching its contract with the Ministry of Justice last year, HuffPost UK can reveal.

The huge sum collected in 2016/17 was higher than the previous three years combined, with two prisons – HMP Parc, in Bridgend, and HMP Rye Hill, in Warwickshire – forced to pay the highest amounts.

G4S’s justice contracts include five private prisons, a secure training centre and two immigration removal centres.

The latest figures mean G4S has been fined almost £7m since 2010, but the firm has refused to say how many separate fines that represents or what they were for.
