Cop out from Capita

Friday September 2 I see an email from a Capita official which simultaneously acknowledges a problem and abdicates responsibility.

Just as Duncan Smith felt his mission to reform welfare was undermined by budget cuts, so Hunt’s ambition to improve quality of care is at risk from financial constraints.”
