Mr Cameron has said so.
Parliament, you see (that's the one in England), has passed the Welfare Reform Bill. And despite the fact that the House of Lords again rejected it, Cameron and his little helper Nick Clegg, got round it by calling it a financial bill, and in so doing took any little power the upper house had to stop the progress of the bill to the palace.
Now exactly how they managed (with help from Labour, I might add) to conclude that this was a "finance bill" is not quite clear. Of course it involves payment of a lot of money, but so does going to war, building nuclear power stations, deciding to fork out £25 billion for the Olympics... yet they are not financial bills. So, a crafty piece of fleet of foot from the master of deception, the git wizard himself David
The aim of the bill is to make work pay, says their beloved leader. Right! First question: what work? There are nearly 3 million people officially unemployed, there are very many more who have recently be thrown out of work by Cameron's policies, and who would rather chew their feet off than go anywhere near the dreadful Jobcentre Minus in order to get a miserable pittance, and a dose of gratuitous stupidity and ineptitude by their badly trained staff. (I've worked there and was given just over an hour's training before being let loose on the public with absolutely no knowledge whatsoever, and I've heard staff recommending
Added to this, every day there are more people being laid off as companies close. And then there are all the sick and dying that Cameron's friends at ATOS are throwing on to the dole. So with something like 6 or 7 million people out of work, and with around 200,000 vacancies (some of which may be for a couple of hours a week), how exactly is he going to make work pay?
It seems that it hasn't occurred to him that for work to pay there will have to be a simple but utterly essential element, which is, at present, missing.
He refuses to tackle the low wages; he refuses to tackle the high rents. Instead he makes it almost impossible for people to live on the money that they will receive.
Well, bless him. Many of the effects of this bill won't be felt in the poorer areas of the country. No one will be anywhere near the limits laid down in the bill in most of Scotland, North England, Wales or Northern Ireland. The people being thrown out of their homes will be in London and the surrounding towns.
So for all the people who will find themselves homeless in London and the South this year, I believe a good place to camp out and do some begging will be where all these rich visitor will be congregated.
Around these stadia in the East end of London would be the perfect place for a beggars village.
Incidentally, I read the story over at the Torygraph, and I scoped the first page of comments. It hadn't gone down well, even with the faithful.
You should have a look at this, as CH points out in his first comment: http://maxkeiser.com/2012/03/01/kr256-keiser-report-copyright-dictatorship-jack-booted-accountants/
