More Trouble In IDS Land

The Lamb

The Lamb Bloomsbury London

Friday night and things down at  The Lamb have got a bit ‘out-of-hand.’  The Sheeplic having been leaderless for a few hours, have fractured and various members have started to accuse each other of ‘slacking off’.  The wine and beer have been flowing rather too quickly into various glasses….. Suddenly the door swings open….NLAT surveys this unruly mob with a glassy stare…..  Whoops…….. Erm ….. I wasn’t shouting ….

NLAT has been busy writing a forward to an article in The Telegraph about IDS – Oh, give the poor lamb a drink ….

So sorry NLAT …. we’re listening …….

‘The Department of Work and Pensions has been accused of “industrial scale incompetence” after accepting it could not reclaim £361m of overpaid benefits last year.

The loss from hundreds of thousands of administrative errors is greater than the £350m savings promised from a raft of new restrictions on unemployment benefit announced in the June spending review.

It follows a landmark Supreme Court ruling which found the DWP had no right to recover benefits that are overpaid due to bureaucratic mistakes.’
