(not satire – it’s Iain Duncan Smith!)

A whistleblower at the Department for Work and Pensions who was contracted to work on Iain Duncan Smith’s disastrous Universal Credit IT system has said the department’s first priority is to please the Daily Mail.

Computing magazine has the extraordinary interview with the whistleblower:

Disaster at DWP: the full interview with DWP’s former employee

So now it’s confirmed what we knew all along.

Iain Duncan Smith’s welfare reforms are nothing at all to do with making the system fairer, or more efficient, or even more cost-effective and everything to do with pleasing the tabloid newspapers to save his own skin.
