A civil service union has proved that Iain Duncan Smith was talking rubbish when he told the BBC that jobless workers in the South Wales valleys could easily find work if they caught the bus to Cardiff.
Figures released tonight by the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) - which represents JobCentre staff - show that there are already nine times as many unemployed people in the Welsh capital as there are jobs.
The combined number out of work in Merthyr Tydfil and Blaenau Gwent - two of the areas a bus ride from Cardiff - is more than the total number of job vacancies for the whole of Wales.
