HoC PMQs: Sir Keir asks about the cash the government spends on PR

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-politics-54901848

He points to the Head of the Vaccine Taskforce, which reports said over the weekend spent £670,000 on consultants.

The Labour leader says new research shows £130m has been spent in total by this government on PR during the crisis.

"Does the prime minister think this is a reasonable use of taxpayer's money?" he asks.

Sir Keir Starmer says no-one is attacking individuals but there are "real questions" about the awarding of contracts. He says voters expect governments to spend money "wisely".

The prime minister says it's been necessary to work with the private sector to deal with Covid, with some schemes working better than others. The private sector has provided the scientific breakthroughs so far, he adds.
IMO, Sir Keir is far too "gentle" with BJ regarding this issue .....

BJ has handed out billions to buddies, cronies and mates of The Dome ......

PR firm hired by UK vaccine tsar linked to Dominic Cummings’ father-in-law

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...-father-in-law

Kate Bingham, the Head of the Vaccine Taskforce, who reports directly to the prime minister, was to spend more than £670,000 hiring PR consultants from a firm called Admiral Associates.

The owner and founding managing director of Admiral Associates is listed in companies house as Georgie Cameron, whose husband Angus Collingwood-Cameron is also listed as secretary. He is also a park manager for Chillingham Castle Wild Cattle Association, and a director since 2004 along with Humphry Wakefield, owner of Chillingham Castle and father-in-law of Cummings.
The link may be tenuous but why is it there at all .....

Of all the PR companies in the world, why would Bingham pick that one .....

*Yawn*
HoC Opposition leader stirs the poop, who would ever think it?
Because of course the Labour party would ever dream of doing such things.
Hypocrites all, frankly.

So pleased was this former Mayor of Islington with Labour that she quit because of oppression & discrimination and now has joined the Tories, making hers the first Conservative seat on Islington Borough Council since 1994!

Starmer is useless.

He should be writing his own manifesto - no change from comrade Corbyn I see, it's business as usual.
