Ed Miliband had a pretty tough stance on G4S after the Oly-shambles, even going as far as saying they should be banned from government contracts in the future:
“People want bobbies on the beat, not G4S. I don’t think G4S should receive their £57 million management fee for services provided to the Olympic games. Frankly it beggars belief that they think they are entitled to it. Before they are awarded any new policing contracts, we need a review of G4S’s ability to deliver.”
Despite front-benchers and activists lining up to attack Labour just confirmed to Guido the growing rumour that the Party will be using the very same security firm for their own conference in the autumn.
A sources close to Ed Miliband said:
“We are not overly worried as we’re not quite yet at the stage when as many people want to come to Labour conference as the Olympics“.
