Welfare reform Act and all being in it together

#Welfare #Reform - #Chris #Grayling on radio 4 today, put a well-reasoned arguement for reviewing welfare payments. 

HOWEVER, he did not explain why the changes are hitting the most vulnerable so severely
NOR why he/they are not putting the same effort into tracking down tax dodgers,
NOR why for example Richard Branson gets a state pension which I am sure he doesn't need,
NOR why MPs themselves are sailing through all of this completely unaffected. 

The next person that tells me we are all in it together will find the words repositioned close to their postate.  If we genuinely were and the cuts were "progressive", I would calm down a bit.
