DJ, Most western countries try to solve problems by creating lots of money....part of the reason why we see an increase of inflation. 

In most countries "bussinessmen" showed up "selling solutions"....and with the right contacts getting lots of money;

Forget the parties for a minute. This is a national scandal of epic proportions. "Ministers spent almost £9bn on personal protective equipment that was either substandard, defective, past its use-by date or dramatically overpriced."

[url]https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/feb/01/department-of-health-writes-off-9bn-spent-in-uk-covid-ppe-drive[/url] or https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/feb/01/department-of-health-writes-off-9bn-spent-in-uk-covid-ppe-drive 

Ministers spent almost £9bn on personal protective equipment that was either substandard, defective, past its use-by date or dramatically overpriced, according to figures released on Monday.

The Department of Health and Social Care paid £12bn while emergency-buying PPE for England in the year to 31 March 2021, its annual accounts show. Tonnes of items bought for £2.6bn were never usable by the NHS – this figure is now £2.7bn – and a further £670m worth of PPE was not usable at all in any healthcare setting.


This was mostly because it was defective, the annual report stated, and items costing £750m passed their safe date before they could be used.

By far the biggest figure , however, is the £4.7bn amounting to the difference between the dramatically inflated prices the DHSC paid for PPE to fill England’s tiny stockpile, and the value of that equipment now.

The accounts, audited by the National Audit Office, do not identify to where that extra £4.7bn was paid, whether in increased prices charged by PPE factories, mainly in China, or in significant profits made by UK companies and their intermediaries.

Gareth Davies, the NAO’s comptroller and auditor general, also noted that PPE procurement had been vulnerable to fraud, as normal competitive tender processes were suspended and multimillion-pound contracts awarded to many companies with no previous experience. As much of the equipment supplied remains in sealed containers, Davies said he had been unable to carry out sufficient checks to be satisfied that substantial fraud had not taken place.

DJ BoJo&Co giving billions of taxpayers money-created out of thin air-to "party sponsors"....

Here in NL an older story [url]https://nltimes.nl/2021/05/22/van-lienden-allegedly-profited-30-million-euros-non-profit-face-mask-deal[/url] or https://nltimes.nl/2021/05/22/van-lienden-allegedly-profited-30-million-euros-non-profit-face-mask-deal is just part of a much larger "neo-liberal" "strategy to deal with the pandemic", filling up pockets of "party friends"....

When there is a lot of money to be spent, there are allways "types" with "good ideas"....

No doubt much more can be found. In South Africa corruption is a major problem, in Brazil, US also politics and money are "closely related" in a wrong way...

Why vaccines/PPE are not under an emergency law when this pandemic is killing millions ? 

This pandemic may only be a symptom of a "sick system"....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Here in the US there are stories daily of people being charged and arrested for fraud related to covid relief programs. The number just keeps growing and growing.
