Iain Duncan Smith's Universal Credit: A timeline

"Can we get a breakdown of where this money actually goes?"

I think it would take a lot of explaining!

By my rough arithmetic assuming £100 per hour, 8 hours a day and 228 working days per year (365 - 104 weekends - 8 statutory holidays and 25 days annual holiday) gives over 86,600 man years.

According to this, the current day cost of the Channel Tunnel was £13bn, and that was over-budget by 80%, but still something of a bargain compared to UC.
