SERCO in the U.S.
Would anybody be surprised to know that SERCO's North American branch has a contract with the National Records Center, who maintain and secure immigration records? I have an inside track on this one, but due to that person's NDA, I can't give names. Majintahu (talk) 09:47, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
The Serco article is great - I wonder if we should also have articles dealing with G4S and Capita as well? Both of those companies deal with similar shit to Serco (making ridiculous bundles of cash off lucrative and highly secretive government privatisation contracts) and also have a pernicious and apparently unavoidable habit of fucking up everything they get their greasy mitts on. Whenever you hear of something being privitised, its one of these three fucking companies that gets the job. And every issue of Private Eye is stuffed to the gills with stories of how incompetent, expensive and similar to vultures they are. Even if their articles were just lists of their appalling cock-ups, it could start to get quite lengthy. The only problem I see is whether they'd be mission-related - Serco has the delightful twist of Christian nonsense, but I don't know if this is the case with the other two.
