There’s an excellent piece over on The Edge of England’s Sword, which reflects my own views on the matter so closely that it’s barely worth adding anything.

The Edge of England’s Sword: Fairness – The New Tory Theme

I’d just like to echo the point about the wife swap couple. I know a woman who lives on a council estate in Britsol. She has worked her entire life to bring up two kids. Next door to her lives a man and woman and their kids. None of them work. All of them are on benefit. They are considerably better off than her. Fair? No, I don’t think so.
