Fascinating write up of the GOV.UK transition

Fascinating write up by The Register of the transition to GOV.UK, focussing on the immigration websites. The title gives a fair idea of the content: Inside GOV.UK: ‘CHAOS’ and ‘NIGHTMARE’ as trendy Cabinet Office wrecked govt websites: The most hated website of all time?

A total disaster, basically. My own impression is that the current version of GOV.UK does at least host the right information, but it still isn’t as easy to use as the lamentable old UKBA website. Why on earth are all documents in pdf rather than html format, for example, requiring an extra click to access anything?
