Lie detector plan was almost certainly leaked last week

I don’t believe that Works and Pensions came up with this ball numbing plan to introduce lie detector tests for those dirty malefactors who sponge off the rest of us.

Personally I think this is a belated April fool prank, by John Hutton, or maybe even Harry Hutton.

If it really did originate somewhere in the bowels of the Government, then the desk jock who devised it has been reading too many Gestapo novels and should be shot at dawn, particularly as his sense of confidentiality was poor and the plan was leaked.

My logic behind this is that only last week as I was taking the air alongside the housing benefit office I noticed a couple of burly compo encrusted builders resembling pot bellied hogs waiting to go inside. Looking back now, it seems obvious that they had been hauled in for questioning, why else would they be talking like Mickey Mouse, and Porky Pig (I was particularly impressed by the reality of his stutter).

maybe ball numbing would actually be a better option!
