Tory corruption: they gave their mate £150 million of OUR money – for USELESS face masks 

Liz Truss: it seems she corruptly slipped her buddy £150 million – for useless PPE.

The worst part of this is it isn’t even the only example of Tories using the Covid-19 crisis to line their mates’ pockets rather than help.

It seems your Tory government – voted into power against last December with a massive majority because the UK electorate thought its MPs were the most trustworthy – has been handing your cash to its mates again.

The Tories spent £150 million of your money on 50 million face masks for the NHS – that can’t be used.

Three months after they were bought, the government said the masks, which use ear-loop fastenings rather than head loops, may not fit tightly enough.

Amazingly, the government still reckons its safety standards process is “robust”.

But the question is whether this process was even used, because the masks were bought by the President of the Board of Trade, Liz Truss, after she was approached for the contract by one of her long-standing friends and advisors, Andrew Mills.

Oh, and apparently it was sourced through a tax haven so this guy can keep all the money.

It seems clear that the process by which these useless masks were sourced was utterly corrupt – just a way to hand a huge amount of money to a friend of a Tory minister.

Here are just a few examples of the huge outcry online:

I want you particularly to bear this next comment in mind…

… when Boris Johnson finds Truss and Mills completely innocent of any wrongdoing.

And remember – the Tories were voted into power because they presented themselves as the most trustworthy.

More fool the voter who believed it.

    “Tories were voted into power because they presented themselves as the most trustworthy.”
    Well, yes, for a certain value of “trust”: as in you can trust them to help themselves.

    £3 per surgical mask for a bulk purchase of 50 million pieces????

    You should be able to get FFP2 at least for that money!

    In fact, I got FFP3 myself for that money! I paid 32 PENCE each for 50 surgical masks like these!

    What were these surgical masks supposed to be, gold plated???

      Ah, I am confused now – did they buy surgical masks, just face-coverings or what?

      According to the BBC they were meant to be FFP2 respirators (still rotten expensive when bought in such huge bulk quantity!)

      Going by the picture I have seen they simply purchased face coverings, the type with a valve… still worth nothing more than mere pences, they are the kind that protect others from catching the virus/germs spread by the wearer, not the kind that actually offers any protection to the wearer. You can see at a glance that those are NOT FFP2 respirators…. what is wrong with these people…

    Like I’ve said before,Tories see Tax Payer’s money as their own.

    Not a quote but my impression of their greedy, self=centred attitude:-
    “People who are stupid enough to pay tax deserve to be robbed, and there’s no way that those useless eaters are going to get any – so it’s ours by right of rule”
