Britain’s fishiest outsourcing firm - and the winner is…

AtosVoting has now closed in our poll to find Britain's fishiest oursourcing firm.

Despite a tight field, we can announce that the people's choice is Atos, with Capita Translation and Interpreting in second place, and A4e in third.

In our previous poll, for Britain's worst tax shirker, the winner (one Mr Osborne) was awarded a giant jammy dodger.

So now we need to find a suitable prize for Atos, which was recently blasted in Parliament by MPs from all parties, yet continues to run contracts including the hated work capability assessments.

Let us know your suggestions in the comments below.
