I see the Evening Standard are reporting that David Cameron has announced he is to use taxpayers' money to fund charities to take on the task of beating 'welfare failure'. Unusual. Are we really expected to believe that charities whose whole raison d'etre is the provision of services to the poor are best placed to take on the task of effectively putting themselves out of business (because that's what they are - businesses)? And is Cameron really saying that outsourcing our benefits system to more unelected and unaccountable bodies with a nice big handout of taxpayers' money is really the way forward?
Also interesting is the proposal to appoint charity boss Debbie Scott, who runs the Tomorrow's People charity, as a Tory peer. Especially when you view the following.
Time for Change? Or Time for More Of The Same Old Same Old?
