I predict an inquiry when it's all done that will find that DOI was equipped with insufficient experience, skills and its own or contracted resources and manpower to undertake the job.

No idea, possiibly  just the cogs of bureacracy straining under the weight of sheer BS. 

 

This one is eye-opening - according to the minutes Longworth was (is?) dreaming up (a no doubt expensive) scheme to extend the MER into central Ramsey... WHY?.
