Spelman Attacks Government’s “Vanity Ministerial Project”

Just in case the Queen’s Speech was not a big enough clue that the government is losing its way, take a look at what the Cabinet Office are up to:

“For years taxpayers’ money was thrown at expensive branding exercises. We are now doing this work in house so it does not cost the taxpayer a single penny. We have developed a new consistent approach to our identity which comprises the royal crest alongside the relevant organisation name.”

Guido is a little worried if the they genuinely believe that because the work is done in house, it does not cost anything. It took him about thirty seconds to find this gem from the Tory 2009 press release archive:

“Caroline Spelman, shadow Communities & Local Government secretary, said: “This is a Whitehall farce at taxpayers’ expense. Taxes have gone through the roof under Labour, and examples like these show how the public’s money has been squandered on vanity ministerial projects and a corrosive culture of spin. Advertising and marketing expenditure across Whitehall will be cut back under Conservatives.”

That didn’t take long…
