About this deal

While Jodey Whiting was stuck in hospital battling pneumonia over Christmas, a letter dropped on her doormat from the Department of Work and Pensions, asking her to attend an assessment.

I am not sure when the stifled snickers began – when I tuned into WJMJ (W Jesus Mary and Joseph, our local Catholic easy-listening station), when I sang along with Josh Groban, or when, grooving on Josh, I started to snap my fingers.
