Tory cronies pocketed portion of £18bn in health funds – and provided worthless results

Spaffer: Johnson and his Cabinet colleagues have been voting cash over to Tory companies by the billion, and haven’t cared what they got back because you are footing the bill.

Isn’t it time Boris Johnson provided an itemised list of every contract outsourced to private firms under the emergency tendering procedure, with details of the results and how far they fell short of what was agreed?

According to the Mirror,

Private firms have creamed off ­almost £18billion of health funds during the Covid crisis – and much of it has gone to Conservative Party cronies, Labour claims.

Official figures show the cost of outsourced contracts is even more than the Treasury’s latest allocation for extra emergency spending to deal with the virus.

A National Audit Office report revealed last month that half of all the contracts were awarded without going to competitive tender – and at least 13 companies who won one had links to the Tories.

Tory chums have had the lion’s share of our money, we haven’t had value for it in return, and Rishi Sunak wants us to pay it all back.

It’s nothing but a huge con.

Let’s have the accounts – and accountability.

    Let’s have the accounts – and accountability. I know it’s a foreign concept for the scumlords in the Tory party that believed time in government is there to only enrich themselves & mates only never do actually work to assist the country.

    But at some point we have to demand enough and accountability for these absolute stupid contracts!! They alwase sign and just costs us ever more dam money…
