Now that he’s promised to spare us of his ill-fated predictions David Blanchflower is having to scrape the barrel for copy. Yesterday’s Indy column by Gordon’s favourite economist was just plain bizarre:

“I am aware of no pilots that were done to suggest that the Work Programme was ever going to work – this is policymaking by guessing. It’s the equivalent to introducing a drug that was not fully tested. It is the labour market equivalent of thalidomide.”

Yeah, just the same. Stay classy…
