Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Iain Duncan Smith is claiming that his welfare reforms are creating jobs.
Quite how cutting welfare payments to terminally ill cancer sufferers – for example – is supposed to create jobs, he doesn’t quite explain:
Perhaps he’s referring to an uptick in jobs being created in the greetings card, flower delivery and undertaking sectors?
And to be fair to Duncan Smith, dying probably is quite a good way to get you off the unemployment figures.
Sometimes I think trying to satirise this government is getting to be almost impossible.
They satirise themselves so much better than I ever could.
