Tory £12bn ‘welfare cuts’ – NOT welfare BENEFIT cuts – and where the hell is Paul Daniels! | SPeye Joe (Welfarewrites)

Iain Duncan Smith has had 15 months in which to tell us where he'll make £12 billion in cuts to benefits. He simply doesn't want you to know and can't be bothered to tell you.

IDS can ONLY mean he is seeking very significant cuts from WTC – the subsidy given to those (often forced onto) minimum wage jobs so that work always pays more.

Plausible? I can’t see anything else that could possibly be classed within this wider ‘welfare spend’ – a phrase which IDS and the Tories have been extremely careful to repeat and extremely careful not to say welfare BENEFIT spend.

That said, cutting WTC will undoubtedly mean that work cannot always pay more as it is the presence of WTC that is used

    How can these idiots claim that they are making work pay when my currently unemployed son has his jsa cut when his wife, who works part time works extra hours?
