They appear to be a recruitment agency, who are now selling stockpiled PPE. Family firm by the looks of things, based in the north Cheshire affluent belt.

Dodgy. As. Fuck.

The people now running teh show are the ones who've spent a lifetime telling us.
It isn't the business of government to be making ....
Imagine how many might have lived if we had been in the business of making PPE, basic decontamination kit and generic antivirals.

I’d guess Cameron and Osborne were tough on keeping a lid on Tory spivery which tarnished the party so badly in the Major years. That’s all over and probity in public life is not even on Johnson’s radar and large majorities don’t help. There’s more ambitious backbenchers who will never rise through the ranks so turn to the private sector for opportunities to advance their careers.

Johnson can't take a tough line on it, because his own record doesn't stand much scrutiny. So he has to play the "nobody really cares" card. Otherwise, see previous comments on the "not quite as shit as you" strategy.

The sad thing is that nobody does care. We've turned into a spivocracy.
