IDS Bows to DWP Fake Outrage

IDS has flown the white flag from the top of Caxton House, bowing to pressure from the Twitter mob and distancing himself from the DWP’s perfectly reasonable promotional material:

“.. somebody along the way put up what is essentially meant to be an example of the kind of advice… and ended up going out as a quote… it’s quite peculiar and quite wrong and we’ve immediately taken it down and stopped it.. “

He has also hung whoever approved the leaflet out to dry, vowing disciplinary proceedings against someone who was essentially doing their job: helping benefits claimants avoid being sanctioned by using illustrative examples. A victory for the Twitter outrage bus…
