The Bumper Book of Government Waste


Matthew Elliott and Lee Rotherham, have written a (bumper) book soon to be published by the Taxpayers' Alliance. The book contains a "myriad of examples of Government waste and useless spending". The picks of the bunch include: the £225,000 scheme advising the elderly on how to wear slippers, and the £40,000 the NHS spent (including "two £8,000 workshops, a £4,000 public meeting, two £1,600 meetings with children and three £600 in-depth interviews with mental patients") to establish that patients wished to be treated with honesty, respect and dignity. A startling revelation I'm sure you will agree.
