Government: instead of saving ‘tiny sums’ on welfare reform, address tax avoidance & white-collar fraud

A lead from The Brummie:

“The ‘savings’ made by denying the basic human rights of the most vulnerable will do nothing to reduce the deficit as the sums involved are tiny compared to the tax avoidance, corruption and fraud perpetrated by the already wealthy and privileged.”

The blogger  – The Plastic Hippo – sees these “reforms” as nothing more than ideological dogma, an attack on a fair society and an insult to civilization.
