It was interesting reading about the guy who set it up. He'd be applauded by the Tories for being a successful entrepreneur. He setup a translation company from his bedroom, contracted work out to translators and before long ended up with a big fat contract from the government. There's more to it than that, but it's just as someone above said - privatisation is regarded as being innately good, and they'll keep contracting it out.
He also appeared on Dragon's Den, and while he didn't get an investment from them, apparently one of the dragons joined as an unpaid chairman.. Wonder if they'll be appearing before the select committee?
He certainly knows how to talk the talk though, albeit in a way that makes working for him sound a bit like one of those 'EARN £500 A WEEK WORKING FROM HOME' ads when you think about it.
