Throwing money away through incompetence. Our money!
Government departments have wasted over £31 billion in the past two years according to an investigation by the Times.
Analysis of over 70 reports from the National Audit Office and parliamentary select committees shows wasteful overspending in areas such as welfare and capital projects and farm payments.
According to the Times the calculated waste is more than double the £15 billion cuts planned for 2015 onwards, recently announced by George Osborne.
