  2. I'm very glad that I gave up on both Question Time and This Week many moons ago.
  3. Did he? Was he not absent for a session of the Health Committee? You're probably right that it's about profile. It's about his profile just like this stuff about Universal Credit is. If the recent harrumphing was genuine then I doubt he'd have voted to remove the "work-related activity component" from the Employment and Support Allowance, for example.

It's not your M.O..
  12. More on the piece from the CSJ bloke about Universal credit that Mercer used to defend himself - there's a thread beginning with this tweet: and ending with this one:
