DWP are going to take on new powers to look at bank accounts for all those on any form of benefit. Including child benefit and state pension. Even though the latter are not means tested. They want to see who has left the UK and is not entitled to a yearly increase etc.

The mind bogles.

Hiding money in a British Gas or water company account may be the next one. Especially the latter. The Chinese State (not individual investors) has large stakes in some of the UK amenity companies esp water. Maybe they want to check if you are a spy and funding the Chinese by lending them £100 or so?

Perhaps “John Boxall” is really the code name?
