Vote For G4S!

I've just noticed that G4S have been nominated for a major award and we all have a chance to enter a vote. They have been put forward for the Public Eye award, an initiative by the Berne Declaration and GreenPeace by the charity War on Want as the company most deserving for 'naming and shaming' in 2013. 

G4S is said to be the world's largest private military and security company with operations in 125 countries employing 657,000 people. Seeing as they are destined to become one of the key players in privatising the Probation Service here in England and Wales, I feel it would be good if a little more light was shed on this outfit. Readers may find a glance at this post 'Ten reasons to vote for G4S as the World's Worst Company' might prove useful.  Personally, I have no hesitation in fully endorsing the nomination. 

Voting closes on January 22nd and the result will be announced at the World Economic Forum  in Davos. A link to all eight contenders and the voting site can be found here.
