IT Klondike!

Several publications are linking to a survey of Labour's 10 most notorious IT schemes. The Independent claims that government has spent £26 billion on computer systems that have suffered severe delays, run millions of pounds over budget or have been cancelled altogether. The surprise is that all the papers seem astounded by this.

Also, they all repeat the canard that Labour is not intending to push the roll-out of ID cards and the NIR is not even mentioned. Nonetheless, there are useful summaries of the major schemes, some of which I had not heard of.
