what a politician will say in the future. This New Labour habit hasn't gone away: is it media management mayhem or Media managing ministers?...but I digress: what GO will say is quite important with all the welfare reform going on. "Trials will begin in four London boroughs of a £500-a-week per household benefits cap and a new Universal Credit system due to replace a raft of other benefits nationwide later this year."...500 quid...a week.
This is the new cap, hardly unfair. If those trials get anywhere near working in London then they are a dead cert for anywhere else in the UK. Now, the criticism from churches and charities and, naturally, the opposition is totally misplaced, as all they do is harp on about it being unfair because the top level of tax is being cut. I've posted the image on the left before but it's worth a good look (click to enlarge).
