David Cameron has set out seventeen new proposals on welfare reform - but there are still major questions over whether the earlier decisions on changes to Universal Credit can be delivered on schedule.  Local authorities have been trying to explain the potential problems ever since the Universal Credit programme was announced - but when did anyone in government ever listen to the people who actually do the job?

 

A letter in today's Guardian struck a chord with me.  In all the endless coverage and commentary on the Leveson inquiry, has anyone ever mentioned the reader?  Honest, accurate, unbiased information - isn't that what we newspaper readers want? Indeed, isn't it what we are entitled to?  Maybe Lord Leveson should call a few ordinary newspaper readers, with no axes to grind, to give evidence.  I imagine there would be no shortage of volunteers!

And of course, I know that Knowledge Boy (KB) is a cabbie - but had forgotten just what this entails! Great to be reminded just how much knowledge a KB needs!
