For interest, here's Globus' listing at Companies House (they're not just a shop behind Sutherlands!) - https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/SC149147

 

From their last audited accounts in the filing history section, it looks like the business was very healthy even before such a contract was awarded.

 

I'd be careful about making accusations against the company of corruption. The government's procurement and tendering processes for Covid PPE has indeed been less than transparent, but I don't see that the company has done anything wrong. Indeed, they are a company who specialise in PPE who have been awarded a contract for PPE.

 

The fact that they have donated significant sums to the Tories doesn't look good though!

Wow it looks like shetland is the hub of tory brown envelope contracts.

Globus (Shetland) Ltd is owned by Globus Group. Their headquarters address is Trafford Point, T2, Twining Rd, Trafford Park, Manchester M17 1SH, England.

 

Perhaps you could explain the relevance?

Quite right to point this out George but that's the way things are in the UK nationally. 

 

One has to wonder about all or politicians after the hash Serco made of running the probation service when it was privatised some years ago, and the scandal when they were running the criminal tagging process. The probation service is now back to government run, and Serco was fined millions for fraud when the tagging scandal broke. They were even claiming for people who had died.

 

Despite this, the Scottish government puts this company in charge of the Northern Isles ferries. They got the contract despite other parties offering a better deal.

 

What's going on behind the scenes here then?

The Tory poltician is mentioned here, so is the the little green man. Why though no mention of the SNP politicians here, I would have thought their support must have been significant when contract awarded????? No murmurs of protest from them as far as I remember.

Possibly a bit of dark dealing here too in the Holyrood chambers.

The same as elsewhere, just kept a bit quieter in Scotland by our rulers.

^Shetland News told us that, "Energy, connectivity and islands minister Paul Wheelhouse said: “I can confirm the next contract to operate the Northern Isles Ferry Services has been formally awarded Serco NorthLink Ferries."

 

Paul Wheelhouse is both M.S.P and a member of the S.N.P.

Well there ye go then, SNP noses in the trough too then eh!. All the same south and north of the border. Interestingly, I was reading a while ago that an MEP only has to serve two terms and has no cause for further worries about his pension. He's cracked it!

Maybe, just maybe, that's why so many want things to remain as they are, able to delve and wallow in the vast trough of money surrounding them in Brussels.

Plenty of corruption here and a damned sight more among the Brussels bureaucrats.

If you look at the first page of Globus Group , right down at the bottom, you will clearly see who is part of them. Oh, and "2015 -  2020" is written beside it.

 

Their head office is at T2 Trafford Point, Twining Road, Trafford Park, Manchester, M17 1SH, England. The head office of Globus Group, who own Globus (Shetland) Ltd, has never moved south, they can't, because that's where they come from and hopefully it's where they'll stay.

Conservatives: Lockdowns, Lockdowns and more Lockdowns stay at home be a Hikikomori only state approved professions and organizations may operate,

Our policy to flatten the curve is to give out free money to our friends and harass those we don’t care about with absurd fines whilst pretending it is for their own good.

 

Labour: agree 100% with the incumbent but give us more money so we can hand it to our cronies too.

 

Gee I wonder why a party with such a lacklustre opposition is not witnessing any enthusiasm from those who would normally back the other side.
