Government and IT: A recipe for rip-offs. Stand by for a kicking

Philip Virgo Profile: Philip Virgo


The report of the Public Administration Select Committee is due to be released at midnight.

It is difficult for many of those who work in IT to comprehend just how unpopular their industry is with politicians and the public. We have many excuses as to why we are “misunderstood”. However, I fear that we are “understood” by politicians rather better than we “understand” them.

Tomorrow will be a day to read and reflect – rather than one for knee jerk reactions.
