Looking at today’s Time’s, it appears that there are more people than just the Olympic controllers who cant keep to budget. BAE systems, builders of a series of new Royal Navy ships and submarines, have managed to go over budget by £500 million, money which will have to be paid by the tax payer. BAE of course, are well known for escaping prosecution when they were investigated by the Serious Fraud Office for offering bribes to the Saudis. Murray Eastern, boss of BAE, has also been offered a CBE by Gordon Brown in the recently announced honours list.
So there you have it – corruption and bad management really does pay.
