The Conservative Government allowed the PPE stockpile to run down & then bought 50 million unusable masks from an offshore finance company with no history of providing NHS equipment. Our health workers were not fully protected. Tragically lives were lost. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53672841
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Huge sums of public money have been handed over, without a tendering process, to companies which either haven't delivered the PPE or it's not been fit for purpose I've now written to the minister demanding answers
Government has admitted that 50 million FFP2 masks they purchased from Ayanda – for a price that we calculate to be between£156m and £177m – “will not be used in the NHS” because “there was concern as to whether the[y]… provided an adequate fixing.” https://goodlawproject.org/news/ppe-masks-not-fit-for-purpose/
So this stinks.... Ministers spent £150m+ buying masks from family-run investment firm. The masks could not be used by NHS staff.

Every penny this hero raised for the NHS has been lost to Liz Truss' mate who has a company worth £100 on paper.... Let that sink in. #PPEcorruption
Its not just the lies..it's that in lying we are lulled into thinking our Govt has stuff under control and we stop paying the attention we should....Please...STOP WITH THE LIES...
Want to provide PPE to government? You must: 1) Be a friend/business associate of government 2) Have zero expertise or ability to deliver equipment 3) Be happy to receive huge sums of money without tender https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/ministers-waste-150m-buying-unusable-masks-from-banker-5v8390xtp
Неудобный вопрос руководству московской полиции. @Главное управление МВД России по г. Москве, почему у полицейских, разгонявших сегодня акцию в поддержку Хабаровска, пустые кармашки для жетонов? Закон о полиции в Москве больше не действует?
I retweeted this y’day but retweeting it again today. The peerage list is an inflection point. The old rules are dead. Decency, shame, accountability. We the press, public & parliament need to take serious stock. This is a Trumpian moment. Johnson has changed politics. So must we
