Rat catchers as health providers


It is a matter of great relief that the Covid-vaccine programme is being carried out effectively and efficiently. As a ‘most at risk’ person, `and, after receiving my first ‘shot’, I can vouch for this.

That is because the programme is in the capable hands of the NHS and rat-catchers and bankrupts are nowhere near the vaccine-operating centres.

The British Medical Journal has declared that, “The coronavirus pandemic has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale that is harmful to public health,” with £billions of Covid-related contracts given to companies run by friends or associates of politicians in the Tory government.

Worst of all, many were given to companies without any expertise in medical equipment, provision or practise or who were insolvent or close to being so. Here are a few, in alphabetical order:


AYANDA CAPITAL, specialists in currency trading, offshore property, private equity and trade, awarded £252 million.
