Anger over new UK trains contract


news.bbc.co.uk

The government said the contract for the "super express" trains would "create and safeguard" 12,500 UK jobs.

Hmmm...does this seem a little strange? Ok, so they 'say' they are going to safeguard a load of UK jobs....

"...The consortium awarded the contract, called Agility Trains, is made up of John Laing, Hitachi and Barclays Bank...."

I see Barclays in there....

But looking at 'Hitachi' I get a little suspicious ... they are owned by The DKB Group:

Who formed after WWII...and have a few banks on their books (amongst other things)...

So, is this some back-handers etc. and other ways to shift £billions around.

But maybe it's just business...
