DWP Tweet About Craig David, Confuses, Amuses And Angers All In Equal Measure


Like an uncle at a wedding trying to get down with the kids by busting out some terrible moves, the DWP has taken a rather interesting approach to try and engage people in employment figures.

If anyone can explain the link between classic pop songs and the number of people in work do let us know.

This sense of bafflement was quite widespread. 

An original tweet without the video attached was originally sent at 1pm before being deleted.



It was then declared fit for work and sent out again. 

Regardless, the memes continued. 

And then it all got a bit dark. 

A DWP spokesperson said: "The graphic shows how employment has increased over the years, and we’ve linked some of those key moments to the pop songs of the time to make it more engaging."
