Department of Government Waste

The Conservatives have put out this hilarious spoof website as an April Fool’s joke. One of the key waste points they raise is the size of centralised government comms spending going through the Central Office of Information which I have been consistently highlighting for a few years now, see here. The total bill was £540 million last year. It is good to see that the Tories have worked out that all of this spending is obscene, not just the £232 million of ad spending, which is where they were at in January. The graph below tells the whole sick making story.
