(not satire – it’s the coalition government!)

The government has awarded an £80 million NHS contract to a private firm despite the company charging taxpayers £7 million more than an NHS consortium bidding against it:

Stoke NHS hospital scanning contract won by private firm

More proof – if any more were needed – that the Lib Dem/Tory government’s mad dash to privatise eveything in its sights is a purely political aganda and nothing to do with saving taxpayers money.

The government – of course – have not said why the private firm won the contract despite its bid being more expensive.

That’s because the bidding process was – of course – secret:

This whole process has been shrouded in secrecy. We don’t even know who – expert adviser or public representative – were on the panel.
