George Osborne is said to be plotting cuts to target housing benefit to pay for his climb down on tax credits.
The Chancellor is desperately looking for welfare cuts elsewhere after being forced to rethink the £4.4billion cuts to working tax credits.
Cuts to Housing Benefits will probably put people out of their homes and on the streets, because you can bet private landlords aren’t going to be nice enough to drop their rents in line with any changes.
Osborne is an economically illiterate, ignorant incompetent. At least, that’s the charitable version. If he really understands the damage his party’s policies, and particularly his budgest, are doing then he’s a callous, sadistic little bully.
