The Cover Up Man!

The rolling out of Universal Credit has been an absolute catastrophe and; very poorly controlled, overambitious and poor value for money.

The assault sheet is appalling because there were no acceptable measures of development, computer systems lack the capacity to recognise potentially dishonest claims and, a £34 million venture in IT organisation had to be written off.

The Department for Work and Pensions lacked the obligatory IT skills and, the required senior guidance.  With the scheme way off course, Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith is culpable of deceiving MPs and the public.

He informed the House of Commons on the 5th March that Universal Credit “Is proceeding exactly according to plan.”  Now we find out from the NAO that, prior to making his declaration in March, the Department started a 13 week reset of the whole programme.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, four months earlier, in December 2012, the Department decreased caseloads predicted for the following April by 80 per cent.  Five months earlier, the Department had greatly put an end to expanding organisation for the national roll out.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
