    Whatever your political leaning, and that includes the apolitical.

    The £2Bn taxpayers money 'set aside' for a No Deal Brexit is being carved up by corrupt Tories and their family connections.

    This should surely be enough to charge them with misconduct in office or similar??

    Short video but enough to make your blood boil:

    This whole contract award is bordering on, if not completely illegal

    Heard this on lunchtime news on R4 today. What a stitch up They asked that shithouse Chris Grayling for an interview and he said no as usual. He's a complete fraud.

    All it needs is a legitimate company to challenge the award and that should be the end of it. I’m amazed that they’re getting away with this.

    Really? Because I'm pretty sure OOCC Ltd can copy paste the terms and conditions from a kebab shop website.

    But who exactly/specifically is the 'they' that allowed / moved this? Genuine question.

    I thought when the 1st stories came out "why don't they pay Brittany Ferries or DFDS Seaways to diversify their ports?".

    Turns out most of the money did go to those two, and they'll be doing extra journeys afrer brexit for the freight shipping. There's no other service going to Belgium, so I'd say it's just about above-board.

    No, I don’t consider it in the least bit above board. They’ve used a very dubious loophole to get around a formal procurement exercise. That get out is “extreme urgency caused by unforeseen events”

    They’ve had two years to see this coming.

    Should at least be an independent enquiry.
    Looks like another cover up.

    What little respect the public have for politicians will be eroded further.

    It’s not good at all

    I can't work out if this is just massive incompetence and contempt, or whether there is also a huge dollop of corruption in there.

    Are there any personal or political links to the companies who were chosen to provide the services (with ferries that don't exist and a company that has never operated ferries!)?

    The Euro Tunnel Co has come out today to fire the second round!

    They're not even trying to hide it anymore. How have we let the country get into this mess

    :fedup:

    Actually, I know how. Its the millions of Gammons that mop up the disgraceful content of The Scum, The Daily Fail and The Express. They are the single biggest threat to democracy.

    Check out their offshore Billionaire owners...
