First they tried a computer system for the CPS and it did not work. So then they tried the CSA, more money; still with no progress. So they thought perhaps let's try something bigger and designed an IT system for the NHS. This too failed, but seemingly only inspired ambition amongst government ministers and their consultant IT architects.
So they thought up ID cards; but still their appetite is not sated.
So now they are floating this....
They have no shame!
