'The enemy prowls, wanting to attack' - that's the G4S message...

G4S are in the news right now, having failed to keep to their side of the bargain and provide the 10,000 security staff for the Olympics. As things stand right now, the security will be provided by 20,000 under-7s, standing on shoulders and wearing large macs in an attempt to look like grown-ups.

Worse than that, there’s a G4S company song and here’s the lyrics so that you can sing along while you watch the video below. Don’t forget to do your warrior face!

You love your job and the people too
Making a difference is what you do
But consider all you have at stake
The time is now don't make a mistake
Because the enemy prowls, wanting to attack
But we're on the wall, we've got your back
So get out front and take the lead
And be the winner you were born to be
G4S! protecting the world
G4S! so dreams can unfurl
24/7 every night and day
A warrior stands ready so don't be afraid
G4S! secure in your world
G4S! let your dreams unfurl
We're guarding you with all our might
Keeping watch throughout the night

[New Statesman]

    Bon Jovi just don't make music like they used to. They really need to start smoking more weed.

    G4S are being paid to supply 10,000 people at a cost of 300 million. By my estimate that works out at 30k per person for the duration of the games. I'm sure the poor staff aren't getting paid anywhere that amount. So G4S are ripping us of, and they're not delivering what they promised. Please can we re-negotiate the deal, this time with some common sense!

    We said we'd guard the Olympic games
 But we're a little short on names
 When you think about what we'd need to protect
 With 10,000 short the games would be wrecked
 Now the Government howls, goes on the attack
 They've spent 300 million, now they want it back! 
We said that we'd sort it, they said 'are you barmy' 
Fuck you G4S - we'll bring in the army. G4S! securing the games
 G4S! well, that was our aim.
 Don't panic 'cos we've two weeks and a bit 
 To find students and kids and get out of the shit
 G4S! keeps your world secure
 G4S! we've fucked it for sure
 We say that we guard you with all our might
 But frankly, mate, we're in the shite.

    I told the butch G4S dyke at Guernsey airport to summon a police officer if she wanted to pat my wife down for the fourth time last week; stupid cow didn't know what the fuck to do.

    Probably for the best that they pulled out. Most of the people they employ probably wouldn't be up to much in a confrontation. The job centre I used to sadly attend employed G4S flunkies. One of which was a pudgy, female short arse and the other looked like she was literally beyond retirement age. Still, I'm sure the government would like their money back, you thieving fucksters!

    Do they still let prisoners escape with alarming regularity, or are they better nowadays?

    http://www.g4s.uk.com/en-GB/London%202012/Clearly it's not a problem according to their website. *cough* it's about as merry & blinded by it's own ignorance as the g4s (that reads "gAs" right)!? upon reading their !"anthem" I thought that they must be great supporters of the bnp.

    I am so happy G4S corporate moterf*****s gets screwed. It is long overdue and their corporate culture of workforce abuse and exploitation didn't pay off, cause staff didn't want to get paid minimum wage for doing Olympics. In addition zero hours contracts operated by the company resulted in situation, when workers didn't know well in advance if they will be working one shift or two weeks. This the nature of zero hours contract but on this occasion a lot of G4S staff decided no to bother and make a stand by screwing the company. It just payback time Mr. Buckle!!!

What do you think?
