Intel picks up cash from UK government -

The UK’s minister of health has revealed how much his department lashed out on management consultancy and IT since the 7th of May this year – and it turns out one of the beneficiaries is chip giant Intel.

Simon Burns, the minister, revealed that 16 consultancies – including Intel – were beneficiaries of British taxpayers’ largesse, although it’s not clear what the consultants did for their money. Intel does have a healthcare division with patient monitoring gizmos.
