    Sajid Javid for one.

    Julian Smith for s second, every account I've seen of his work as NI secretary is that he was doing well.

    Plenty more were culled, but several were contentious and many were insignificant.

    Edit: but all of them were palatable to the voting public as they were still MPs.

    "Resigned". Forced out is a better summary.

    Some might apply the same summary to the referendum vote.

    I did mention Deloitte in this fiasco...

    Deloitte was hired to help scale up testing nationally, and is understood to be handling logistics across a number of the sites, working alongside other private firms such as Serco and Boots.

    They could have contracted with numerous other companies that actually do Logistics as their main business. Deloitte - of all people.

    Mmmmm they are one of the large accountancy firms. I don't think they handle it only "track it" and look for tax efficiency etc. This is what they offer, doesn't include planes and trucks etc. These used to be provided by Transport Agents - these days they are called Logistics Providers / Companies.

    https://www2.deloitte.com/uk/en/pag...ces/solutions/logistics-and-distribution.html

    Serco, Boots, the armed forces, amazon do handle logistics. ;) Must admit that I have no idea what Serco do though. The others do move things around.

    My son decided to go into accountancy. Proved to be harder than he thought but it seems as now it's mostly handled by a few larger companies they are reluctant to provide large company audits that don't look very good otherwise the company would just switch to another.

    I know exactly what Deloitte do and the services they provide. The link you provided just proves that. How many logistics companies have they set up? They advise (they are after nice expensive IT implementations, audit and consultancy fees. They will discount their audit fees to win the fatter consultancy contracts.

    If you enquired I think you would find what they actually do is project management with an accountancy bent. Not that I am saying they are any good at it,
