We should all know by now, it has little to do with capability, it has little to do with role, it has little to do with service requirement. It has everything to do with politics. MOD have been told they have to save £XXX,000,000 so that someone's company, in no way related to a minister, can be paid a fortune for PPE. COVID has to be paid for so the low hanging fruit is an easy target before the more difficult financial decisions have to be made.
