IDS blows £120,000,000.

Duncan Smith has repeatedly maintained that universal credit will be delivered on time and on budget but, according to sources close to the project, senior civil servants have raised concerns in the past few weeks that the 2017 deadline for getting millions of people on to the programme is now unrealistic because IT systems are not working as expected and design flaws are too numerous.
 There does seem to be some sort of cognitive dissonance going on within Iain Duncan Smith, as he appears to be utterly incapable of understanding that he is messing things up horribly. This has happened to such an extent that I have seen a campaign to get him chucked out of Parliament for his constant lies, which might be unfair, as he probably doesn't know he is lying.

Perhaps they should have let William Hague have this one, as it is believed he has experience of organising a piss-up in a brewery.
