And Statistics

According to the article here, Benefit fraud and errors hit £3.1Bn last year.  Which seems like a lot of money to your average person on the street.

Of course, it then qualifies that only £1Bn of that was fraud.  Still, seems like a lot, doesn't it?  You could do quit a lot with £1Bn.  At least, I could.

But then you can see how much the government spends on benefit in the UK and see that that's less than 1% of benefit spending.

The question being - how much effort do you want to spend to get fraud down below 0.5%? 
What's an acceptable level of fraud, considering that (nearly) every method that's used to cut down on fraud makes life harder for legitimate claimants?
I wonder how much is being spent on fraud prevention, and how much it saves.

(If I've got my numbers wrong somewhere then please correct me.)

Signal Amplification

From the website of the Early Learning Centre.
For the little princess in the family we have great feminine outfits like Butterfly Fairy, Sleeping Beauty, Ballerina and Nurse’s uniform. Why not add a medical case for that extra touch of authenticity.

The boys are catered for too, with great Doctor, Policeman & Fireman uniforms, not to mention fantastic Pirate and Knight costumes. All these can be combined with a range of accessories so your child will really look the part.


Because, apparently, boys can't do ballet, and girls can't be doctors.

You can contact them via the page here if you'd like to express your displeasure.
(cheers to momentsmusicaus and erindubitably for the linkage).
