It’s sad to read that the Coalition has now thrown in the towel and rather than CUT welfare as it needs to for our  future well being, it now says it will simply manage rate of increase;

Iain Duncan Smith has admitted that he is no longer seeking to cut Britain’s benefits bill and is simply “managing” the increase in handouts. The Work and Pensions Secretary said that, unlike other European nations, the “reality is that this country is not cutting welfare”. He added that “all those on benefits will still see cash increases in every year of this Parliament”.

We are Welfare central and this useless Coalition has shown it is gutless. The consequence is that slowly but surely we will move closer to Greece than Germany, with Debt consuming our national interest. In 2015, I believe Labour will get back into Government promising even MORE GENEROUS welfare provisions and those people in the UK who can be bothered to go out to work in the wealth creating sector will find they have to work longer for less, as they are taxed to the hilt in order for the massive welfare bill to be funded.

  1. Iain Duncan Smith is one of the better cabinet ministers and he has always been clear that his aim is not to simply slash the welfare bill but to reform the system so that the perverse incentives to not work are no longer there.

    It will cost more in the short term, but the long term effect will help people avoid the trap of a lifetime on benefits with all the negative effects associated with that.

  2. There’s no anti-gravitational force which pushes the cost of welfare ever higher. This is a deliberate, conscious policy decision.

    If every MP was given a cut of each pound taken from the welfare budget (say 10p to MPs, 90p saved for tax victims), we’d see the welfare state pummelled into nothing within a couple of years.

  3. Well said Ross, totally agree. But will the Tories stick the course, and will Labour continue it if they win in 2015?
