Dispatches - How They Squander Our Billions
Monday, 9th March 2009
8pm to 9pm
Journalist and broadcaster Jane Moore investigates how the government is supposedly squandering billions of pounds of taxpayers' money. As the country enters a nasty recession and we feel the need to tighten our financial belts, Jane examines how the government is not following suite and is seen to be wasting billions of pounds of taxpayers' money each year.
She gives a cursory investigation to a variety of controversial public projects that have had millions, if not billions, spent on them and attempts to discover where the money went, who sanctioned the spending and why so little appears to have been done to prevent massive waste and excess.
Dispatches also highlights the findings of a report that details the escalation in government public sector spending and sets out what needs to be done to stop the waste. Public spending wastage is reported to have cost every household nearly £50,000 over the past 11 years. All in all, this is typical Dispatches hatchet-job fare.
