SERCO - The Biggest Company You've Never Heard Of - 'the merchants of the Earth'

When your government is OUTSOURCED to this global extent, what does government actually mean any more?

If you've ever seen Paul Verhoeven's 1987 film ROBOCOP, about a totally privatised future, you'll know why this Serco-produced corporate video just has to be watched.

RoboCop: Excuse me, I have to go. Somewhere there is a crime happening.

January 24 2011 update:
Services company Serco has pulled out of a $2 billion (£1.25 billion) bid for U.S. defence consulting firm SRA International Inc, the Daily Telegraph said on Monday. If the deal were to go through, it would make Serco, which manages services for Britain's schools and armed forces and runs prisons and rail services, the biggest foreign company providing services to the U.S. government, the newspaper said. SRA is a Fairfax, Virginia-based defence consulting firm. [source YAHOONEWS]

Also Serco bought out RCI, a small defense contractor that specialize in US naval contracts.
