It's not that simple, John

Published 03/06/2013

I am fed up reading John Simpson pontificating on welfare reform. On May 28, he wrote: "The proposed changes are designed to ... ensure that the payment rules incentivise individuals to come 'off benefits'."

Well, that's hunky-dory, isn't it John?

Do you realise that many disabled people currently on PIP/DLA are actually in work and, if it is removed from them, they will be unable to work?

John, you should be careful what you wish for. The "welfare cuts" in Britain are savage.
