IPPR Taking G4S Cash For Shadow Policing Minister

Back during the Olympi-shambles (remember them?) Ed blustered:

People want bobbies on the beat, not G4S… Before they are awarded any new policing contracts, we need a review of G4S’s ability to deliver.”

Not only are G4S providing the security for the Labour party conference, but it turns out they are also sponsoring a fringe event hosted by lefty wonk-shop IPPR. Their Director Will Straw’s own website calls the company “controversial”, yet he’s happy to take their money. The invite-only discussion on police commissioners will feature Labour Shadow Minister David Hanson, who must have changed his mind about that review into “G4S’s ability to deliver.”

Guido knows what his first question will be…

UPDATE: Will gets in touch in to point out that he is not IPPR’s Director, rather their Associate Director.

    Wait – so providing security at a private conference now counts as a policing contract? Inviting a representative of a company that provides policing solutions to a conference on how the role of commissioners will affect policing solutions is a bad move?

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
