Re: Scam Of The Century

There's potential in reversing this approach. HMG puts its money where its mouth is and offers a contract to build this system they believe could be built. The usual suspects will tender and one of them will get it. They will fail to deliver but that's true of many govt. contracts. Unlike the others this won't be wasted money. It'll be money well spent on shutting the idiots up while they wait for something to be delivered. Hopefully those on the relevant Parliamentary committees who twig what it's about will keep schtum.
