The Tories’ £12bn of welfare cuts could come back to haunt them | Patrick Butler http://gu.com/p/488gd/stw
The wrong place to make cuts. If it’s OK to make savings by stopping pay-outs to the poor and needy, why not stop overseas aid?
Our welfare claimants paid the taxes which fund benefits. Then, when they need it, it is not there because it has been given away overseas.
The government’s priorities are wrong. It is our money they are spending. If savings are to be made start with resources handed out to people who have not paid taxes in this country.
The overseas aid bill is 12bn – the amount the government wants to save. Also billions are paid to the EU annually. In both cases it is not clear where the money is going and how it is being spent. Last year 6bn of foreign aid was given to the EU and world bank because the government could not find enough overseas projects to spend the money on. That is 6 bn that could be taken off the overseas aid budget immediately.
Money given to the EU should be closely scrutinised. The EU is a notoriously wasteful institution. Every penny of British taxpayers money should be accounted for. The government must stop throwing billions of taxes down the drain and then make savings by cutting benefits and services which the British people have paid for.
