Comment Re:Can the system cope? (Score 1) 914

I didn't say it surprised me. Thats why I gave examples of other government projects that have failed. Like all the other major IT projects undertaken by the govenment they will under estimate the complexity of the system and under extimate the eventual cost. We will be left with a system that does a tenth of what they specified at ten times the original cost. I'm happy with the system not delivering the orwellian scenario but I'm less than happy about the British public having to pay for it.
