Two Tory MPs question scale of planned tax credit cuts | Politics | The Guardian
Backbenchers say more protection needed for people working hard in low-paid jobs [...] Their unease is shared by some others within the Conservative party. [...] There is also concern that the decision to slash tax credits is a reversal of David Cameron’s position before the election that he did not want to cut child tax credits. Michael Gove, the justice secretary, also signalled before the election that there would be no cuts to tax credits, saying: “We’re going to freeze them for two years, we are not going to cut them.” [we are all in this together, right!?] &! bit.ly/1N4kSiB - Sanctioned jobseekers with mental health problems are deemed eligible for immediate hardship payments only if they have an accompanying physical health problem. &! bit.ly/1KhEPmd - redefining what sickness and disability is, as they redefined (used) living wage, and redefined child poverty and its measures. >> Tories are cunning scum of PR, Spin Doctors and neoliberals. "[R]edefined as a personal failing."
