It's gone from £3bn to £6bn in 6 months!

Hate to think what an EICR would cost let alone the remedial works!

You've probably got stuff for in there from the first edition of 7671.

Let it fall down with all the politicians inside I say. :lol:

No doubt the contractor who does get it will be wife swapping with some MP and they will be charging through the (cast iron) roof for accessories and lamps! meanwhile their wife swapping buddy will be getting a nice fat brown envelope.

If its a public contract anyone in the EU can bid on it, cheaper to get the Romanians in and it would give them something to do other that stand outside wickes all day like the Polish used to.

Just on the news that they may locate temp to the North.

It would be nice to park them next to the fricking fracking sites they are so keen to put down the road from me

They could rent a room at Holyrood.

 

Why nor move them out, refurbish it, and make it a home for refugees.

Ah ha, but we need to do as the French do, and word the tender document so that local labour makes up xx%, local apprentices make up xx% etc etc. It just makes it far harder for over seas companies to bid and comply

then the international companies who didnt get the job would then sue them for breach of EU laws or something and then claim what the contract was worth...

you will find councils and other government bodies are quite good at wording. Plymouth CC once put out a taxi contract that some French company bid for :shakehead
