The Case for Slashing Benefits
There is no doubt the perpetrators of the Philpot killings should be punished for their despicable crime.
However, the Tory attempts to try to equate being on benefits with being a criminal is equally despicable.
Look at Geoffrey Archer and Chris Huhne to name but two; by this measure of criminality, the whole of the commons should have their wages slashed because it funds a criminal lifestyle.
In fact, there’s probably a stronger case for this than highlighting one family out of millions as the de facto case for slashing benefits.
