Before Cummings there was Greensill
at 15:51 22 Jul 2021

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-57927390

'The job, Mr Boardman says, enabled Mr Greensill to "promote a product which did not, in fact, provide material benefits to government, although it could have been of benefit to his incipient business and was of immediate benefit to his former employer, Citibank".

He specifically criticises former top civil servant Jeremy Heywood saying it "should have been apparent... that Mr Greensill was building a supply chain business in the UK and should have considered the issue of conflicts of interest," the report says.'

It is difficult to know whether the blatant disregard an open market form of competitive tendering for the handing out of contracts for PPE recently is better or worse than the covert mission creep that was happening under Cameron.

Intriguing report on the BBC website about a reservoir on the Nile, both in terms of subject matter and a rather nifty button at top left that allows you to pan 360° even whilst the report is ongoing, up and down too:
