This next one is that rare combination of both a crony contract and a duff deal. The Government gave a former Tory councillor’s company £120,000,000 for some face shields… But surprise, surprise, The Sunday Times reported that fewer than 1 in 400 of the face shields procured by the company on behalf of the government have been used, because they didn’t meet the correct standards. That means that the government spent around £423 per face mask. Remember that next time they tell you there’s no magic money tree.
