Re: Anybody know any bookies...

maybe what odds on the existing system _still_ running in 8 years. Like a few systems I know of in ... and ........... departments that have outlived their "replacements". One of them was close to $10^9. (not Defence, altho fan fouling stage there has yet to make the news)

It seems issuers of tender still believe in that formulae for massive fail, multiple suppliers, with subcontractors and consultants. All I expect to hear is experts galore stuffing up at great cost while unnecessary things like health and education are cut.

Anon because everything is a state secret now.
