Taxpayers gets poorer, ministers get richer: Britain writes down nearly 15 billion pounds on useless COVID PPE gear
Britain has written down almost 15 billion pounds in costs related to COVID-19 personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical items over the last two years, prompting censure from its spending watchdog.
Britain has written down almost 15 billion pounds in costs related to COVID 19 personal protective equipment (PPE), and other medical items over the last two years, prompting censure from its spending watchdog, but for whatever reason, did not mature to the obvious bribe investigation.
The Department of Health and Social Care, DHSC, estimates there has been a 6 billion pound reduction in the value of items procured in response to the COVID 19 pandemic during 2021-2022, the National Audit Office, NAO, said on Thursday.
Out of the 6 billion, a write down of 2.5 billion pounds relates to items already purchased by the DHSC that it no longer expects to use. The rest relates to items the DHSC has committed to purchase, but no longer expects to use.
The bottom line, it is clear that 6 billion pound has been wasted in purchasing things that nobody need or use, and with such a big profit, the beneficiaries of this fake purchase, could get away and buy their way out of criminal investigation, as usual.
