News Editorial: A clear abuse of trust looks at an alleged gravy train / conflict of interest in the national project sector. Personally, I think more power to the alliance. If they can get a coalition of suppliers together and provide something of use for them (such as access to local authorities) then why shouldn’t they? This is the expression of the free market we’re always told that government needs. However, it has to be said that the way they’ve gone about it is pretty cack-handed.
