Re: Changing goal posts
The Harrier jet was a success story. The last Government sold our remaining squadrons' Harriers as spares to our friends across the pond. Then they realised that they won't have an aircraft that can use the two new aircraft carriers ordered under teh previous Government - or at least for a few years after they are scheduled to be completed.
The current Government invested £3m pounds in the charity "Kids Company" - apparently against the advice of the Civil Service department. A week later the charity folded.
