Managing editor of the Sun appointed director of communications at DWP.

What: Richards Caseby, who had been managing editor of The Sun until the previous August, is appointed as the new director of communications at DWP. The appointment comes as DWP is increasingly under fire over media coverage of deaths linked to DWP policies and practices, particularly the WCA. 

Why significant: Shows the close links between The Sun and DWP, which have previously resulted in news stories that stigmatise disabled claimants and support the cuts and reforms being introduced by work and pensions ministers.
