Exorcism for Change!

You’re probably aware that Conservative high-flier and demon-purge charity campaigner Philippa Stroud failed to win her Tory target seat of Sutton and Cheam in the recent election.

Not to worry! She has been made a special advisor at the DWP.

I look forward to some interesting policy announcements from that government department.

Perhaps long-term jobseekers will need to submit to an exorcism if they are to continue drawing benefit.

Maybe new incapacity benefit claimants will be subject to a medical test involving a ducking stool and a pond.

And I wonder if being demonically possessed means that you count as two people under housing benefit rules?

And you thought the Flexible New Deal was bad!

I warn you not to be ordinary. I warn you not to be young. I warn you not to fall ill. I warn you not to get old.

– Neil Kinnock, June 1983
