Sadiq Khan v G4S, With Thanks to G4S

If Sadiq Khan is going to massively contradict himself in his conference speech, he could at least try to not be so obvious about it. Here he was today with a sure-fire favourite, bashing the government for employing G4S:

“Does it inspire confidence when the Prime Minister rewards failure? Rewarding G4S and Serco with more and more contracts. Despite them letting down the taxpayer time, and time again… Privatising our Probation Service, and handing over supervision for dangerous and violent offenders to G4S and Serco. Public safety in the hands of the same companies that let us down on Olympic security, tagging and prisoner transport.”

Then literally two lines later he was thanking the security company that Labour chose to keep them them safe in Brighton:

“We’ve all seen the great job G4S staff have done on conference security.”

Putting public safety in the hands of G4S? Rewarding them with another contract? Who would do such a thing…
