The Home Office spent an astonishing £140million on consultants last year, up 44 per cent on the previous year, as public finances spiralled into a debt crisis. Large amounts of the money were lavished on seeking advice on the controversial £5billion ID cards project.

Consultants were also paid large sums for planning a vast Big Brother database to store the details of every Internet click and telephone call made by UK residents, known as the Intercept Modernisation Programme (IMP).

The Tories said the increase in spending was astonishing, Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said: ‘We’re now finding out more and more about the true cost of the Government’s abortive ID card project. More than £215million has been spent on the scheme so far.

It reminds me of a mate of mine who is a High-Roller. When he goes to a LAP DANCING CLUB instead of sticking a £20 note in the DANCER'S KNICKERS, he swipes his PLATINUM AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD DOWN THE CRACK OF THEIR ARSE!
