Latest rubbish from 'REFORM'

http://bit.ly/d7abM :This blog post is absolutely right, in saying that "As soon as middle earners are excluded from welfare, services and levels of support deteriorate." When you abolish good universal benefits and make them means-tested or provide 'targetted', then then those benefits will lose perceived legitimacy, and within a decade the rich will be pressing to abolish the benefits in question altogether, on the grounds that "We never see any of this money, so why should we pay for it? These benefits go to people who should learn to stand on their own two feet..."
'Reform' is really on a roll now: two shite reports within a week... Here's my criticism of their rubbish report last week: http://www.leftfootforward.org/2009/10/reforms-road-to-ruin/
