    I know that many probably won’t view it like this, but there’s been so many U-turns by the Govt (mainly I understand brought about by pressure/outvoting from Labour), that is it possible that the Tory party is starting to be ‘run’ by the Labour party?!

    Feels like a disaster area…..add to this the real disasters like the floods., NHS Services and other public service failures as a direct result of cut backs and run downs that their crazy penny pinching ideas have landed on the real people of the UK. Nothing the Camoron should be proud.

      There hasn’t been a U-turn on the Bedroom Tax.
      As you say, it is still operating and therefore still capable of killing.

    Portillo is completely right in what he said, they are in a mode of paralysis, done nothing and have nothing to say. Their only concern is to keep the pork joint in his post.

    They may have u-turned on many things but not enough things, bedroom tax, cuts to benefits and pay, still getting away with them!
