This appears to be one of those occasions where journalists saw a potential story without first checking the facts - i know, who would think that possible?

It is ludicrous; ludicrous that the most down-trodden in society and those with the fewest prospects were treated as if they were second class citizens. And some media organisations haven’t even bothered to tell their readers this occurred at all. No inhumane acts of indecent exploitation should meme 60 years of brilliance. There is no place for such an abysmal tale when the monarch stands there humbly, shrouded in courteous elation and honour. That just wouldn’t do at all.
The director of a security company who forced unpaid jobseekers to sleep rough before assisting at the Jubilee pageant has had a string of previous companies ‘struck off’ by regulators after a failure to submit accounts. The revelation could further bring into question the professionalism of an operation awarded security contracts for the Olympic Games.
