How much is this whole sorry saga costing?

Just as well the government is paying for this fiasco and not the taxpayer.

If you are to believe my local rag the West Midlands CC is costing £5,000 per day (rent, running costs etc).

Absolute shambles, and as always no one gets hauled over the coals for such an enormous waste of cash.

Ultimately the tax payer is footing the bill, whichever way you look at it.

I'm sure military intelligence would be very interested in this K. It has spent billions researching an unbreakable code and you come up with one just by letting the cat walk across your keyboard.

'Get the Rack and the Union boys voting for a national control in Inverness.  (Oh no, how would that work-in Scotland they still dispatch fire appliances to fires.)'

Sorry Colin, I was up in Scotland last week and the latest news was they were closing Inverness Control Room and reducing the number o control rooms down to 3.
The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to those who think they've found it.

I think it is only a proposal, Michael, which is so sad as the old H&I people were one the nicest FRS in the whole of the known universe. But hey ho, thats progress.
