UK jobless total continues to rise…

As I reported yesterday, the new Coalition government spelled disaster for the employment prospects of Elizabeth Henderson, the human face (sic) of the UK ID Cards Scheme.

Regrettably, the jobless total seems set to soar still further, since if there’s no ID Card scheme, there’s not much need for an Identity Commissioner either. Bad news for the relatively recently appointed Sir Joseph Pilling.

Rumour has it that his office is already politely cancelling his upcoming engagements.
