Re: Does Johnson and his Government really care about the NHS?

How come SERCO seem to be able to get their noses in so many public troughs? ... even though they have been (at best) useless and (at worst) dangerously incompetent? And how have they been able to get away with scarfing so much tax-payers' money? Serco Receives Track and Trace Contract Despite Fine ...
