We're all aware how often Lord Mandelson or Gordon Brown pop up on the media and, like benevolent millionaires, inform us of their latest concession to us, the great unwashed.
The sharp-as-a-tack Lobbydog received an alert from the Tories yesterday. It seems all the grand announcements of schemes involving the DBIS (Department of Business, Innovation and Skills), HM Treasury and the banks, are more or less hot air and not performing well, if at all.
Surprised? No, neither am I.
Lobbydog has the details of the various funds/schemes/programmes which are failures. One of my questions is where has the money gone which was earmarked for these projects?
