Does Universal Credit make a mockery of Whitehall business cases?

By Tony Collins

Does Universal Credit make a mockery of this Treasury guidance on business cases?

It’s supposed to be mandatory for Whitehall departments to produce business cases. They show that big projects are “unequivocally” affordable and will work as planned.

You couldn’t have a clear case of calling black white and up down, however.

Have you ever met one of those people that can’t stop telling you how good, or rich, or important they are – and you just know they’re over-compensating for a complete lack of whatever it is they want you to believe about them?

Watch as a factory worker being talked at by hapless Theresa May is revealed to be wearing ear plugs!

Pride's Purge

There is an extraordinary video tweeted by independent publication The Pileus which shows a nervous Theresa May visiting a factory in Wales which has been temporarily purged of all but two of its workers:

But even more hilariously, one of the factory workers being talked at by May is actually wearing ear plugs:
