But he doesn't have "sod all" to show for it.

In a time of austerity, he's generated what someone just up-thread calculated as 200,000 person-years of gainful employment. In pretty decent jobs, too - that's assuming an average salary over 30k. So if the project has been going for 5 years, that's 40,000 full-time, middle-class jobs sustained for that time.

If you're Secretary for Work & Pensions, that sounds like a win to me.
