Another Grayling failing

Private probation contracts to end early by government.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44973258

How has this clown become a minister of state? He'd be hard pushed to tie his own shoe laces. Or is it a deliberate policy to deploy this imbecile where something needs to be reliably destroyed?

He said "clear lessons" needed to be learned but he wanted the private sector to continue to be involved.

The contracts will be replaced with new ones under changes that will cost the government £170m.

FFS!

Another useful u-turn would be the de-privatisation of the forensic science service, but perhaps there has to be a really big scandal before that could happen.

Police review 10,000 cases in forensics data 'manipulation' inquiry

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/nov/21/forensics-data-manipulation-may-have-affected-10000-cases

Amazingly, this wasn't deemed big enough...

If the contractors have good links to the party and have made a sack of lolly then it's hard to call it a failure.

Grayling deserves a very long prison sentence.

SinnerBoy - 27 Jul 2018 16:51:15 (#6 of 83)

A suspended sentence, more like.

bossab2 - 27 Jul 2018 16:56:14 (#7 of 83)

With a rope.

But I thought that we were told that privatising these services was going to be more efficient and cost effective? Surely they wouldn't mislead us.

JohnIlly - 27 Jul 2018 17:00:49 (#9 of 83)

Grayling must have some tapes or pictures hidden away.

I can't believe that three justice secretaries on from Grayling and all that is being accomplished is correcting his fuck ups.

bossab2 - 27 Jul 2018 18:22:21 (#11 of 83)

Graylings fuck ups will impact some people for the next 70 years...

Verdigris - 27 Jul 2018 18:24:28 (#12 of 83)

I heard on the wireless that someone was calling for the useless twat to be banned from ministerial office for life. A bit lenient, I thought.

dottie30 - 27 Jul 2018 18:30:19 (#13 of 83)

Can I just point out that some of us were crying foul when he was in office... Cameron sacked Ken Clarke and Dominic Grieve in order to placate that anti HRA element of his voters prior to the 2015 election. He put Grayling in Clarke's place and fuck knows how much taxpayers money that cost. (Clarke of course saved taxpayers money while he was justice secretary by giving us the first reduction in prisoner numbers for 20 years).

SheikYerbouti - 27 Jul 2018 19:35:15 (#14 of 83)

Well done you, I suppose.

Verdigris - 27 Jul 2018 19:46:04 (#15 of 83)

Ken Clarke, an intelligent Tory. Why the fuck is he in the Tory Party?

See also Sarah Wollaston.

RosyLovelady - 27 Jul 2018 20:01:53 (#16 of 83)

Over-fond of money?

bossab2 - 27 Jul 2018 20:31:20 (#17 of 83)

He put Grayling in Clarke's place and fuck knows how much taxpayers money that cost.

And is still costing Dottie. You can't rerun a divorce.

JohnIlly - 27 Jul 2018 21:18:08 (#18 of 83)

Why does it cost dottie?

Or have you omitted a comma?

carterbrandon - 27 Jul 2018 21:53:28 (#19 of 83)

Grayling must have some tapes or pictures hidden away.

Nosferatu doesn't show up on recorded media.

Verdigris - 20 Aug 2018 08:50:28 (#20 of 83)

The situation at Birmingham prison wouldn't have developed overnight. I'd estimate that it would take 2 or 3 years.

I wonder who was Justice Minister in 2015?
