The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) announced its new director of communications on 9 October. But she’s not really a ‘new broom’. Because she worked with Conservative politicians for years. She was even a special adviser to former work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith. But that’s not the worst part.
The DWP: a new broom?

Lisa Hunter is the DWP’s new director of comms. A press release said she will:

oversee the communications around… welfare reforms to help millions of people hear about how the government is supporting them into work…

Work and pensions secretary Esther McVey welcomed Hunter:

I’m delighted… [she] is joining DWP as Director of Communications. She brings a wealth of experience from across the public and private sector.

Indeed, Hunter does have a “wealth” of public sector experience; the majority of it being for Conservative politicians.

Yes into the jobs that are not actually there for them! or are suitable for them or pay enough money for them. :) :whistle:

They are delusional at best living inside a bubble.Making people sign on every week doing mindless job searches totalling 35 hours a week looking at out of date vacancies or the same ones as last year is their idea of help followed by as many sanctions as they can possibly land on you.

A real big help indeed! :whistle:


I have an idea tory minister.pay peoples mobile phone bills, printer paper and ink and a printer,pay all bus fares to joke club and that may actually help.Sorry again that's all a little too constructive 'expensive' to implement.

Sorry i forgot, the new WHP, i hear all the clapping with the promise that's going to bring to everyone over the age of 45.

I would like her to communicate a detailed breakdown, wage by wage, sector by sector of all these jobs created and the ones which are apparently to follow that we can all move into seeing as Mcvey and her predecessors have continuously failed to do so despite going on about them at every available opportunity. It will be a real eye opener for me to know exactly who is interested in my services at 53 and not having done any work for at least 4 years and also that I have no references. Oh and then there is my medical history but I guess that isn't relevant along with the many others who have long term conditions some of which dictate that they have trouble leaving their homes and/or using public transport. Can't wait for the rhetoric from this one.
