Shuggy on workfare

July 24, 2008 at 9:39 pm (capitalism, Champagne Charlie, Human rights, labour party, politics, poverty)

I was going to get around to writing something about New Labour’s latest attack  (fully supported, of course, by the Tories) on the poorest and most vulnerable in society. But Shuggy at the Sots has beaten me to it and I’ve nothing to add to what he says in an excellent, thoughtful piece. Read it!

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to motivate a vote for Labour, isn’t it?
