Panic seems to have set in at the DWP after the department was caught out making up case histories to justify the use of benefit sanctions leading to the hashtag #fakedwpstories. With Iain Duncan Smith promising heads will roll for the blunder – but not his own of course – the DWP now seems to be carrying out a purge of previously published propaganda.
One victim of that purge is a bloke called James, who had been drafted in to explain how Universal Credit will make work pay in a handy infographic. Unfortunately James has now been disappeared with a notice saying ‘We are reviewing this publication.
The only reason James’ disappeareance has come to light is because evey time the DWP updates a document it is automatically republished as new on their website – which is a real pain in the arse just by the way.
Luckily, as can be seen above, the ghost of James lives on in google’s cache (be quick).
If only we could rewrite history to not include Iain Duncan Smith this easily.
