MARK'S NOTCAST Ep 62 : The Great PPE Scandal? 23 February 2021.


Today I talk about current events, and namely one of the major items in the news, where it appears that the landlord of Matt Hancock's local pub has won a contract to provide medical vials* and protective equipment with his small (and newly formed) business that specialised in takeaway food packaging and plastic cups. Here I talk about the legislation and regulation, the breaches of legislation, the costs and implications of this, the perceptions of "Cronyism" and "Chumocracy", potential corruption and the risk to life that the supply of unsuitable, and grossly overpriced, equipment can provide. *Sorry, I thought it was PPE in my discussion, turns out it was vials. But the principle remains.
