More Universal Credit Failure

Universal Credit is still staggering on from failure to failure, with ministers now infighting over who gets the blame.  I note that Iain Duncan Smith is now looking for new (no doubt very expensive) consultants to sort out the mess.  His past record of blaming civil servants for the debacle will probably make it harder to get new people at an affordable price, since there is an obvious political risk that he will try to damage any new consultant in the same way.

His best bet would be to come clean about past failures and try to organise a cross party approach.  He seems to be simply too stubborn to make such an admission however.
