How can we prevent another Thames bridge procurement mess?

Comment

Talk of 'procurement fetishists' and a 'big squawk' is a bit rich, when what Boris & chums were at was an attempt to impose on us (and the riverscape) a rather private folly - intended primarily for the benefit of the sponsors & designers, their egos and their pockets - as an asset of great public value that warranted 'bungs' of rather a lot of public dosh both now and forever after.
