Corruption & hypocrisy

Remember this scary big-brother-is-watching-you campaign from the Department Of Work and Pensions ?

No excuses, no mitigating circumstances, the poorest people in society were to be intimidated into declaring any changes in their circumstances or any casual work they might do to supplement their benefits, at the risk of not only losing their benefit but also criminal prosecution.

Meanwhile Peter Hain failed to declare having received £100,000+ for his deputy leadership campaign through a highly spurious think-tank. He's been defended by Gordon Brown; apparently he is guilty only of incompetence and it is quite sufficient for him to apologise.

His job ? Minister for Work and Pensions. Wanker.
