Non-Existent Department Issues Government Report Err, There’s No BERR, Prime Minister

Lord Young has a worthy report out today, he was once a Minister for Maggie in what was known as the “Department for Enterprise” with a whooshy 80s TV advertising campaign by Saatchi. His report on “Making it easier to set up and grow a business” is being put out by BERR, a department that no longer exists. No, Minister…

The new department into which it was subsumed is a merger of the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR). It has been since 2009, since the Government News Service doesn’t seem to actually realise, called the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
