Unbef******lievable. The Department of Work & Pensions, you know, the department which is supposed to encourage work, has given its entire staff the afternoon off ... to enjoy the snow.
So while half the country struggles to get to work, a government department sends home those of its staff who actually made it in. No doubt this sends out a subtle message to the rest of the country, and indeed those on strike in energy outlets all round the country.
If anyone sees James Purnell in the street, throw a snowball at him and tell him to get back to work. It's the only language he understands.
