According to the Government’s own website, the UK NHS Test & Trace app so far has a budget of £37,000,000,000 (thirty-seven billion) for two years, which is an unfathomable sum of money. It is hard to imagine just how much money that is, at a cost to the taxpayer, mostly because these huge numbers are talked about casually when talking about Government spending and huge corporations and these gigantic sums being discussed and tossed around have just become normalised to background noise.
This app was apparently developed by Wolfgang Emmerich who is the CEO of a company called Zühlke Engineering Ltd according to the website Med-Tech News. Looking at this company on the UK Government website for Companies House, they are a “small company”. Reading their most recent financial statement (for the year ended 31st December 2020) on Companies House it is perversely amusing to see listed under the “Going Concern” section that…
The directors have carefully reviewed the future prospects of the Company and its future cash flows, including an assessment of the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business remains uncertain and as a result unquantifiable at this stage. Nevertheless, having assessed this the directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future being at least the next 12 months from signing of these financial statements.Page 12 – Link
How lucky. They think they will manage to stay in business for at least the next 12 months, despite the unquantifiable “impact” of the “COVID-19 pandemic”.
It does appear that Zühlke Engineering Ltd was/is not the recipient of the entire £37,000,000,000 although it would be tough to know exactly how much because, as their financial statement explains on page 20:
The company has taken advantage of the exemption in FRS 102 Section 33.1A to not disclose transactions with wholly owned group entities.
The uninformatively titled “FRS 102 Section 33.1A” comes from a document produced by the Financial Reporting Council that defines financial reporting standards for the UK and Ireland. The document contains a statement that no part of the document may be reproduced, in any way so I shall paraphrase and cite the page numbers. FRS 102 Section 33.1A (page 257 of the PDF) defines the exemption quoted in the financial statement. What is interesting to note is that Section 33.11 on page 259 of the PDF explains that an entity is exempt from the requirement to disclose related party relationship details, plus transaction details, outstanding balances etc. if the relationship is a State, or another entity that is controlled or significantly influenced by a State.
Also noteworthy is that despite the UK boasting constantly about how it is at the forefront of technical innovation and the home to all kinds of clever people making amazing techy things, Zühlke Engineering Ltd is owned by Zuhlke Technology Group AG, a “company based in Switzerland”.
So we won’t likely ever really know where that £37,000,000,000 has gone, not really. Even if we take the reported figures from Zühlke Engineering Ltd and their financial statement of accounts at face value, there is an insane amount of money that cannot be justified, for an app.
In fact there is nothing you could produce that would actually be worth that sum.
Here are some comparisons that will illustrate graphically how much that amount is, to give some perspective to that number, bearing in mind it was for an app on mobile phones developed in less that a year.
If you take a list of the top 74 most expensive films of all time, costs adjusted for inflation to reflect today’s figures, and add them all together you’ll get a figure of £13,994,000,000 which is a huge amount of money. That list of films (Wikipedia link here) includes:
- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
- Avengers: Age of Ultron
- Avengers: Endgame
- Avengers: Infinity War
- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
- The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
- Solo: A Star Wars Story
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- X-Men: The Last Stand
- X-Men: Days of Future Past
- Terminator Salvation
…and 54 others. The almost fourteen billion pounds spent on those films is dwarfed by the cost of the NHS Test & Trace app budget. In fact it makes up just 37.8% of the cost of the T&T budget. You could make all those films twice and still have over £9,000,000,000 in change. Here is a graph to illustrate that visually:
The Government is talking about building 40 new hospitals by 2030 “as part of a package worth £3.7 billion”. Whether that happens or not is besides the point. That is a tenth of the cost of the T&T app. You could then, using the Government’s own figures, build 400 new hospitals with the money spent so far on the Test & Trace app, which according to Meg Hillier MP quoted on the Government’s own website “cannot point to a measurable difference to the progress of the pandemic”, which was completely obvious to anyone who gave it more than a nanosecond of thought.
If that is hard to visualise, the cost of building 40 new hospitals in 9 years compared to the 2 year budget and expenditure on the NHS Test & Trace app, here is a graphic to help:
Of course they wasted billions of our money on something that didn’t help at all, and has only caused problems. Of course they did. No complaints from the so-called “opposition” Government either. They had no intention of helping, because this whole fake pandemic has been about creating problems, transferring wealth from the lower classes upwards and bankrupting the economy so it is ripe for the Great Reset.
If you didn’t realise it by now, that the Government doesn’t care about our health, our welfare or anything else than using us as tax cattle and slave-labour for their upcoming public/private partnerships with global corporate allies, this should be all the evidence you need.
