Different because we have a new home, and a new family. Whitehall Watch is now part of “Manchester Policy Blogs” – one of several streams of analysis and comment from academics at the University of Manchester and from many other places too.
Different too because Whitehall Watch itself will gradually be changing into a “multi-author” blog with many other voices besides mine.
The same because Whitehall Watch will continue the sort of incisive analysis, based on evidence and expertise, that is has developed over the past nearly four years. The growing crisis in Universal Credit, that we predicted as soon as the White Paper was published three years ago, is just one example of where we have (mostly) got it right in “speaking truth to power”.
I hope you continue to enjoy Whitehall Watch if you’re one of our “regulars”, and if you’re new – welcome! And if you have something to say – based in evidence – then drop me an email or post a comment.
