What a waste


WE are learning how the Conservati­ves cannot be trusted with taxpayers’ money as they admitted to £8.7billion losses on Covid PPE contracts worth £12.1bn.

Every piece of unusable, unsuitable and overpriced equipment is charged to the British public and the colossal waste of our money by the Government is indefensib­le.

Add other unacceptab­le bills such as the £4.3bn in loans and financial support written off as Covid fraud and the total tops £12bn before other areas are counted – enough to cancel a year’s National Insurance rises or suspend BBC licence fees for nearly four years.
