Gobsmacked

The billions the previous Government spent revamping Job Centres to bring them into the 21st century, would have been better spent creating jobs.

So you can understand why I was gobsmacked when I read that the DWP was dishing out millions to private employment agency, called A4E. Why do they merit the money when a well-respected pioneering firm (Forgemasters) gets nothing?
