    “It would however be wrong to settle on a precise timing schedule and segmentation at this stage and more work will be done over the winter with HMRC and local authorities to understand the detailed options available to us. Even once agreed in the spring of 2012, the DWP will keep the approach under regular review as it recognises that the approach needs to be flexible enough the respond to national and local circumstances as they change in the 6 years before the migration to Universal Credit is concluded.”

    I would suggest they should have done this prior to the publication of the Welfare Refom Act.

    “Universal credit is the most amazing social science laboratory that I suspect we have ever seen, and I wonder how many other people will see it. Under universal credit you can change different aspects of people’s support.” Lord Freud in Grand Committee 1/11/11

    To continue the noble Lord’s analogy, I’m sure all the rats in their cages will appreciate the chance to be a part of this amazing experiment.

    So 6 years is now the length of time for completion of migration.Is that 6 years from now or from October 2013? If it is the latter then that would take us up to 2019-first sign of slippage?

    Surely he meant to say you could change people’s behaviour. The support is what the experimenter provides (to continue his analogy). Truly frightening that this man with no previous relevant experience believes he can embark on a social engineering experiment for the greater good. What happens when the rats start fighting one another and their social systems break down, or perhaps that’s for another phase of the “experiment”

    They might want to consider what happens if the rats turn round and start biting the experimenter.

    Our rats are always friendly (says so in our studies) and never change their spots (especially if we do not look for such a change).
