    A firm has been stripped of NHS contracts after hundreds of tonnes of clinical waste from hospitals was allowed to pile up at its sites.
    Health Minister Stephen Barclay said new arrangements have been made with Mitie to replace the service by Healthcare Environmental Services.
    I think that the real problem here is the privatisation of clinical waste disposal, when we all know that the government is well equipped to handle it.
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    And given the contract to MITIE despite their appalling track record.
