G4S have hit the headlines for their ineptitude with the Olympics security contract. This is hardly a surprise to those of us who are used to them missing their ticket office collections, or who remember them when they were notorious for losing prisoners when they were still called Group 4.
This is one of those companies that lines its owners' pockets by picking up public sector contracts, doing them badly and trousering the fees. This latest fiasco should see them kicked off all their public sector contracts - including on the Tube - and their workers brought in-house.
Don't hold your breath though.
