Pin photos of Benefits Cheats to lamp-posts says top DWP Official.
“Terry Moran, a senior official at the Department for Work and Pensions, said he wanted to shame bogus claimants into stopping claiming but admitted his idea was unlikely to be adopted.
Mr Moran is the chief operating officer at the DWP, and is the official “senior responsible owner” of the Universal Credit programme, Iain Duncan Smith’s key benefits reforms.
He told hundreds of civil servants at a conference in west London on Tuesday that he wanted to shame bogus claimants into stopping claiming – but admitted that his idea was unlikely to be adopted.”
No doubt the photos will be handy for the local lynch-mob.
This is the man publicly making this ‘suggestion’ – which in any normal employment would get him the sack, instantly.
