  • May's statement one of the silliest in recent memory. Basically, she is saying she does not give a monkeys what the contract says; she will terminate any contractor if she thinks the numbers make it worthwhile in the end (plus fight them tooth and nail in arbitration to defend a wrongful termination). No doubt contractors will raise prices to factor in more "May risk" going forward.

  • Whilst there are obvious flaws in Home Office decision making here, you have to question the advice they were receiving from Pinsents Masons. One would have thought they would have negotiated appropriate SLA's and KPI's with remedies for failures that would have ultimately led to a valid right of termination that shouldn't have cost the tax payer anything. One of the basics of an outsourcing agreement. Yet it seems they were actually rewarded for their failures by acting in the litigation! You would hope the Home Office seriously reviews it's panel of law firm providers after this debacle.
