The brother of the Chief Executive of the development company (Palantir) played a large part in the Vote Leave campaign with Dominic Cummings.
Make of that what you will.

Will you be downloading it?

I'm not passing my details/data onto any app within a million miles of that cunt Cummings if I can help it. Besides the fact that the above report suggests strongly it won't be of any use anyway.
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

Outsourcing firm Serco has apologised after accidentally sharing the email addresses of almost 300 contact tracers.

The company is training staff to trace cases of Covid-19 for the UK government.

It made the error when it emailed new trainees to tell them about training.
