    Carillion in Crisis

    Another nasty business that screws its suppliers, cuts corners and has fingers in to many pays. The construction and facilitates industry is ripe for reform with: strictly enforced rules for tendering to prevent corruption proper policing of specification and regulations to ensure safety, quality and environmental efficiency. prevention of long supply chains where the main contractors subs to sub contractors and who then subs to sub-sub contractor who then employers a labour provider whose team are often working as contractors. Such an environment makes it difficult for anyone in the chain to take responsibility. The main contractors have gradually subbed everything so the staff that work for them don't get their hands dirty. This is true of FM now. The whole thing is liable to go pop if the order book drops or cost go up or a few contracts turn sour. Leaving high overheads of staff who wouldn't now what a shovel is.

  12. For good quality jeans that last try Howies. Tend to be around the £70 mark. I have been buying them for years. Also I've found the Linea menswear at House of Fraser is good quality mid-priced clothing.
  13. Why don't they simplify the IR35 rules to something like if you work solely for one business for longer than 1 month you are employed by them and should be on payroll. As well as contractors this would scoop up Uber and others.

    Wakefield Academies Asset Stripped

    Former school headteacher jailed for stealing and having sex in his office http://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2017-10-06/former-school-headteacher-jailed-for-stealing-and-having-sex-in-his-office/ This involves and academy. I'm not saying that no fraud takes place in LEA schools but there is a pack of supervision in Academies that the scale of the problems are more likely to get out of hand.
