Benefits for all!
I'm well aware of the arguments against Owen Jones (middle-class twat pontificating about the working-class, laying the foundation for a career in the Labour Party, etc. etc) but give the boy his due - a cracking article in today's i about the case for non-means tested benefits such as winter fuel allowance and Freedom Pass. What we need are more across the board benefits not less. Where will the money come from? Why by taxing the rich of course. There is much about the Green Party that I find frankly risible but they are right on the money with their Citizens Income policy. Benefits for all. Let them work that want to. It might come as a surprise to the ruling class but most of us would not choose daytime telly, a can of lager and a dodgy kebab.
