The DWP Now Officially Aspire To Sanction People
The DWP are ever so inventive regarding naming sanction targets. They are commonly known as offloads, and staff are told to reach a certain amount or face disciplinary action. Well now they have a new name. Aspirations. Staff have to reach their aspiration targets. So yes, officially the DWP now aspire to sanction people.
I really do hate that word. A word that should relate to positive things has been poisoned by the government.
This may seem like a strange thing to pick out. But our editor is a writer who loves the English language. The idea of positive words being turned upside down is a very upsetting one to her.
