    No 'bites the dust'

    Just another player in the corporate merry-go-round.

    Holely incorrect

    "A Capita mouthpiece said..."

    Given the company, surely that's the wrong end of the alimentary canal?

    I live in Barnet

    ......AKA the London Borough of Capita.

    I hardly need to say any more than that, really, but clearly their business model is to persuade gullible organisations that they can provide the same service cheaper, then provide a poorer service at same or greater cost, by subcontracting their work to as small a number of people as they can get away with without actually leaving their offices so empty that squatters move in.
