David Miliband admits Government IT incompetence on Radio 4?

This evening, whilst being interviewed about the EU's recent environmental announcements, the Secretary of State for the Environment, David Miliband, was asked by Eddie Mare if he would introduce individual carbon trading.

In response, Miliband said that he was not about to announce a loyalty card scheme for 60 million as given the Government's "fame for competence with IT projects" it would be "unwise" to do so. I nearly crashed my car.

fame for competence? hez either fallin out with the govt and being sarcastic or he is retarded.. and considering the present government scenario.. I would say he qualifies on both counts.

So will the ID cards be different somehow?

Different? Of course. They'll be a bigger and even better failure of project management excelling past achievements. Must you run everything down? Surely We should celebrate our success at failure shouldn't we?
