There is only one question that needs to be asked in the debate about Welfare Benefits…and that is ‘What can we afford?’.
When there is ‘no money left’ what can we afford?
That seems to have escaped the BBC who continue to question Coalition welfare reforms and the need for them on the basis that we have an endless supply of money.
The BBC et al ask only ‘What do they need?’ with no requirement as to answer how to pay for those ‘needs’.
That may seem easy for an organisation that doesn’t have to work for its funding but in the real world that’s a model that is the stuff of dreams… imagine being able to force your customers to pay for your goods even if they don’t use them…and in advance as well.
