Re: COVID-19: Appointments and Contracts - Strictly for Chums

Hi

It is inevitable that there will be a Public Inquiry.

It will take years and the benefactors will be long gone with huge amounts of money.

Yes, public enquiries often only really benefit those doing the enquiring.

The reason the private sector has had to be used to provide solutions for COVID-19 is because the civil service and the NHS are utterly useless. There should be an inquiry into what our 130 billion investment each year into the NHS gets spend on.

Blairs construct of PFI accounts for a fair-sized chunk.

Propably where she should be - doing her job.
Not pandering to the whims of desperate muck-slingers.

Lord Feldman: Department of Health adviser's firm took work from Covid company

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54975507

Lord Feldman's PR firm began advising Oxford Nanopore after it struck a 28,000,000 deal with the Department of Health.

On 1 April, Health Secretary Matt Hancock met with Oxford Nanopore, a company which makes Covid-19 tests, and Lord Feldman, the former Conservative party chairman.

At the time, Lord Feldman was acting for the government, which had employed him as an unpaid adviser on Covid. He was also a managing partner with the lobbying firm Tulchan Communications.

By the date of his next meeting with Oxford Nanopore, six weeks later, the testing firm had agreed a 27,900,000 contract with Mr Hancock's Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). This was to supply Covid testing kits, reagents (chemicals needed for testing), training material and support.

The firm went on to win a further contract worth more than 100,000,000 with the department, to supply rapid Covid tests.

It has now been confirmed to the BBC, by Tulchan, that it is employed by Oxford Nanopore to do "PR and public affairs" for the company.
Blatant Tory cronyism .....

Nah, it's more like typical gentry avarice.
Lord Feldman was (as your blurb says) an unpaid advisor.
Lord Feldman is also part of the House of Lords - all that the Beeb are doing is giving another reason to get rid of the antiquated lot of them.
