Here’s my col on the Carillion farrago. Did the government award a bust company contracts to shore it up in the short term, while it prepared for liquidation?  https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/missing-a-crash-in-slow-motion-nwtrnf25x?shareToken=6e0d4dc3e8a00883347d6a1af123dd8a 
@CNTomFitz @fletcherr @TimesBusiness Tom, the HS2 contract was awarded a week after the July profits warning. The government had every chance to review any earlier decision it had made before officially announcing it.
Not sure why anyone's surprised Carillion's gone bust. The numbers were stacked against it, as explained here in November.  https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/a-true-demolition-job-at-carillion-jh9cbdvlz
