I read a joint article by Chancellor George Osbourne and the Secretary for Work and Pensions Ian Duncan Smith in one of the Sunday papers.
It alluded to the fact that the Labour Party especially Gordon Brown and Ed Balls deliberately and with malice expanded welfare entitlements in order to engineer a constituency that would always vote for Labour regardless of the damage it would do to the economy and the fabric of the nation.
I also read that the leader of the Conservative Party in Scotland (whose name slips my mind) said much the same thing. She said that the Labour Party in Scotland and the SNP are deliberately avoiding change and are content to manage the status quo in order to secure political advantage.
They must be reading this blog. To George, Ian and the lady in Scotland, welcome to the club but what took you so long to work it out to what depths the Labour Party and the SNP will sink to hang on to political power.
