Another Labour Brainwave

So Labour Minister Caroline Flint thinks it would be a brilliant idea to chuck the unemployed out of their Council houses. You couldn't make it up!

How are you supposed to get a job if you are homeless? It's rich coming from a Government which has not yet eliminated the poverty trap and has invented a tax credits system so complicated and unable to cope with changes in circumstances that in itself is a great disincentive to employment.

This has to be one of the worst examples of scapegoating and pandering to the Daily Mail I have seen recently.

You are correct to say the tax credits system is a shambles. But there is little point in criticising the government for failing to 'eliminate the poverty trap'. No government will ever eliminate the poverty trap. Eliminating the poverty trap is not the government's business.
