Crony-watch: son of Tory donor who hosted Boris Johnson’s wedding party had £11.2m Government cash

Jo Bamford of Wrightbus: what did he do to deserve government funding apart from be the son of a friend of Boris Johnson?

This is from a while ago but let’s put it up so we can keep an eye on it:

The son of a Tory donor who hosted Boris Johnson’s wedding party was handed an £11.2million UK Government grant to build hydrogen buses.

Jo Bamford’s Wrightbus was given the cash to pioneer the “green” fuel cell vehicles in March 2021.

He is the son of JCB founder Lord Bamford, who hosted Johnson’s lavish wedding party on his grand Cotswolds estate. The then-Prime Minister and his wife Carrie partied with family and friends at 18th-century Daylesford House after officially tying the knot in 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hmm. There are hydrogen fuel cell buses on trial now – but they aren’t made by Wrightbus.

Is this another waste of public money on a Tory crony?
