  • We said it 6 months ago but the shit heads who run this country bury their heads in the sand
    We need to go back to basics the days of these “so call main contractors “ are over !!!!
    How in gods name are we ever going to be able to place our future in the hands of those we elect to govern us
    The shambles of Brexit is clear evidence the ability of those who run this country let alone ministers who award these huge contracts to idiot run companies

  • Was obvious they were in big trouble and how many more? This will ruin more smaller subcontractors and suppliers. These are the hundreds of hard working SME's who only ask to be paid for the excellent works they do and don't just sit on site with their clipboards or in the office counting money. Sickening. Not only this, but at this time of uncertainty, this stupid government bring in digital tax and the VAT Reversal Scheme as well as the workplace pension. What are they thinking of? Who do they think will pay for the expertise and software necessary and why do they put more obstacles in the way of running a business instead of encouraging the many small businesses who employ most of the workforce. Many will give up, fed up with constant demands on their meagre profits making it a complete waste of time.
    And what is happening to the dodgy directors of Carillion? sod all I suppose.
