G4S gets what was it? Ã‚Â£500 million and they can't get anybody to turn up to check bags. So the poor old troops can do it... and look... the security company suddenly has 3500 less sets of wages to find. We, the tax payer, can fund the shortfall and add to the security firm's profits.
Meanwhile, the troops don't even get toilet facilities.
As I've posited previously, amateur athletics or Mammon?
