They can’t be serious? (Government IT more likely to go offshore, www.computing.co.uk/2236616).

[Minister for trade and development] Gareth Thomas, have you seen the news, the job figures? Why are we giving jobs to other countries when skilled people are being put out of work here?

This is a double whammy on taxpayers – they have to fund the unemployed and pay for offshore companies.

There is a very simple answer – stop spending millions on failing, ill-thought-out IT projects and reduce your outgoings, keeping people in this country in work so they keep spending and the downturn does not turn into depression. This is simple maths.
