People drown while Shadow DWP Liam Byrne waffles on about the need for ‘a major update to the welfare state’

We're all about to drown while 'Labour's' Liam Byrne drivels on that "we need a major update to the Welfare State"

 

Auntie Beeb Reports: 

‘David Cameron is set to call for a wider debate about welfare, arguing the current system promotes a “something for nothing” culture of entitlement.

Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Liam Byrne believes the government is “coming at it from the wrong approach”.

“We need a major update to the welfare state,” he told the Today programme, calling for “stronger action” to get people back in work, “new answers” on social housing and “radical reform” of private pensions.’

While we all drown, let’s listen to Liam’s ‘spirited’ defence of us and our welfare state: http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9731000/9731460.stm

And read this letter to The Guardian by PCS General Secretary Mark Serwotka on how useless and absent ‘Labour’ truly in defending us. With friends like these …
