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.

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).
