Summary of the issue by Full Fact here

In six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them. The human body was knocked up pretty late on the Friday afternoon, with a deadline looming. How well do you expect it to work?

I've seen people say that most of the money went on the testing part of test and trace and therefore it's not wasted money. But if it didn't make any difference to the outcome then doesn't that make it wasted?
Panorama's undercover agent's findings seemed to suggest the testing part might have been a waste of money given the absolute state of the lab they were working in. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m ... esting-lab

They wheeled out a couple of experts to be appalled by the footage they were watching. Their reactions were my favourite bits of the show.
