Flogging dead horses

I see that the new Government intends to reform the welfare benefits system.

Of course, each year, the previous government (and the one before that, ad nauseam) promised much the same thing- and failed. But this time it will be different. And Iain Duncan Smith is such an inspiring and competent administrator. We must believe that he will succeed, must we not?

You've got to respect IDS for getting down and dirty in the trenches. The mere fact he understands the "not worth working" culture, means we may at last get a fair benefits system that allows people to make the transition from benefits to work without them being screwed!
