Wise Up Wednesday PS: Update On Carillion – Channel 4 10:30pm tonight

Update On Carillion – And Construction Dies While The Worthies Bicker!

My Wise up Wednesday earlier today referred to Carillion and the thousands of businesses that have suffered as a result of their director’s; “recklessness hubris and greed”

I didn’t know when I drafted that Wise Up Wednesday that tonight’s Channel 4 Dispatches programme at 10:30 is about Carillion.

In my email I said that Carillion has cost you, me and every other taxpayer our share of the £70 million paid to liquidators and lawyers. Not to mention the increased cost of a whole raft of taxpayer funded projects.

No doubt tonight’s programme will provide further shocking revelations.

How Many Other Contractors Are Playing The Same Game?

Many Contractor’s have aggressive QS’s that have no moral compass. It’s just a game, they are paid to do a job, and that job is to screw the Subbies!

And so, Specialist Contractors are forced out of business one by one and quietly but surely the industry dies. Thousands have already died, and more will follow if this vile cancer is allowed to continue unabated.

Construction is gradually being destroyed because certain Contractors don’t care about another Subbie going to the wall. They relish it, because they get to keep their cash!

And because no one dares to make the link between this ruthless treatment and people’s lives, and the overall state of the industry, then the vicious circle of destruction continues unabated.

Stop Before It’s Too Late

I want to hear to hear from everyone who wants to get behind a campaign for effective action to fix the problem once and for all.
