Promise of 'efficiencies' may be appealing to authority facing £100m COVID black hole

Kent County Council is inviting IT services companies and BPO specialists to bid for places on a £500m framework agreement set to offer a range of outsourcing services to the English public authority.…

Everything about the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is ridiculous. The 6.2-liter supercharged V8 good for 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque is ridiculous, as is a supercar-shaming 3.6 second 0-60 mph. Driving this SRT madness – in, you’ll note, ridiculous “Hellraisin” purple – requires a suspension of not only disbelief but any scraps of self-consciousness you … Continue reading

Helmed by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, the 2012 London Games Opening Ceremony is regarded as one of the greatest in Olympic history.

Celebrating everything that makes Britain Great, the four-hour Isles Of Wonder spectacular featured jaw-dropping set pieces, a cast of thousands, famous names galore and plenty of silliness too.

It really was A Moment.

Here, we take a misty-eyed look back at one incredible night that made the hearts of every Brit watching swell, and feels all the more poignant after the year we’ve all had.

We still can’t quite believe how they managed to pull off those  incredible set pieces...

And a herd of very well-behaved sheep

There were stars galore, including Kenneth Branagh...

...Dizzee Rascal...

...The Arctic Monkeys...

...And Paul McCartney

Things got very silly indeed when Mr Bean joined the London Symphony Orchestra for a rendition of Chariots Of Fire

 

And even sillier when the actual Queen did some acting alongside the actual Daniel Craig

Before the actual Queen* jumped out of a helicopter with the actual Daniel Craig* to enter the stadium (*not actually them)

 

Yeah, Harry wasn’t buying it

Speaking of Bond, David Beckham did his very best 007 impression to escort the Olympic torch to the stadium via the Thames...

 

Anyone got a light?

The cascading Olympic rings are still one of the most enduring images from the night

So. Many. Fireworks.

Even the show’s director Danny Boyle couldn’t believe he’d pulled it off

On a typically bright day in Mountain View, California, last November, thousands of Google workers streamed out of their offices and onto the sprawling courtyards of the search giant's headquarters.

The executive, once a member of co-founder Larry Page's inner circle, had allegedly coerced a female employee into performing oral sex on him.

For Google's rank-and-file employees -- who'd steadily been building a playbook to protest what they saw as the search giant's immoral behavior -- the sexual assault accusations were the tipping point.

Highly paid engineers had rarely taken much interest in activism, and the events at Google reverberated far beyond the search giant's global campuses.

Workers at Amazon and Microsoft have protested decisions their companies have made, speaking out against facial recognition work with US immigration agencies.

Earlier this week, Facebook, whose employees have been more reluctant than others to push back against their bosses, joined the fray.
