Note to Dr Cullen?

The UK Guardian reports today that a leaked document reveals the government is considering moving Benefit call centres offshore in order to save £1bn.

By some very rapid and rough calculations I reckon New Zealand could do the same and save around $65 million.

(Better still, if we could get a couple of hundred thousand working-age people off benefits we could save closer to $4 or 5 billion)
