Employment minister Mark Hogan claimed £12,000 from the taxpayer to furnish a second home including four silk cushions and considers it morally wrong to repay benefits to unemployed people illegally sanctioned for refusing to do workfare aka unpaid slavery.
The (supposed) opposition Labour Party, meanwhile, is supporting the Conservatives pushing through retroactive legislation today (to make illegal activities in the past legal in the past) to deny £130m payments to those on the dole who had their payments cut in breach of what was the law.
Who champions the poor and disadvantaged? Answer: no mainstream political party. Much to this country’s shame, they’re all too busy looking after themselves, bankers and the media.
