DWP incompetence

You really couldn't make it up...

The Sun report that:

"A WOMAN who claimed a bad back made it impossible for her work was employed at the SAME Government department that paid out her benefits.

Twenty-four-year-old Joanne Kirman fraudulently obtained over £9,000 whilst employed at the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP)....

Prosecuting for the DWP, Warren Spencer said Kirman stated she was incapable of work but it was discovered she was employed 37 hours a week at the DWP national helpline centre in Blackpool.

The court heard it was a £15,000 a year job which Kirman obtained through a disability advisor at the Department of Work and Pensions."

You really couldn't make that sort of story up, could you?
