    Exactly. It's a govt IT project, so they'll get Crapita to do it, and after 5 years, and £2bn wasted, nobody will have learnt anything useful. But lessons will be learned...

    Or they’ll get HMRC Connect bods onto it, and lots of lessons will be learned from it...

    You mean all this stuff that is already available, just as a single data set...

    Sounds actually sensible to me

    Services data - GOV.UK

    Performance - Activity on GOV.UK
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    No real political fall-out from The Great Hack so they may as well keep doing it.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    You voted for him, you voted for a tinpot dictatorship - all going to plan. Assuming the plan involves pouring petrol onto the burning dynamite factory.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
