"While the poorest will be hardest hit by austerity, today's announcement on child benefit shows no-one is immune from the government's unwarranted rush to cut," said (U.K.)TUC general secretary Brendan Barber.
"This is a big blow to the principle that has served Britain well for decades that welfare should be available to all, not just the poorest."
From BBC news, this little quote shows you how well trained by the wealthy Mr Barber actually is. It has NOT served 'Britain' well Mr Barber, it has served the better off well, who have been pleased enough to take benefit they did not need from those who did, particularly the disabled, old, and otherwise unemployable.
As much as I personally hope the right-wing of the political spectrum are forced to turn left significantly, it is sickening to read the quote above from someone supposed to be leading the Trade Unions' Council. Silly me. Why should working people support those too sick, old, and inadequate to find employment? Answers below please.
