  • Christopher Lean says:

    While not great news for the deferred and current pensioners, the PPF should be held up as a Government success story. Given its resources, the PPF can accept all the Carillion schemes and should still be on course to be self-sufficient.

  • This company has a continuous stream of government contracts worth £ billions … how has it managed to get into such a mess? ? The ineptitude at the ” management ” level must be extraordinary!

    And what about the banks who loaned them 1.5bn? Both Carillion and the banks aspired to “status” of “Too Big To Fail” which may save their bacon, but taxpayers are tired of rewarding failure so let Carillion go bust, it will save £40B on the white elephant of HS2.
