Hack cartoons on welfare reform

The government has launched a green paper on welfare reform targeted in part at removing incapacity payments from one million people. The devil with these sort of uncosted and ‘bold’ initiatives is always in the detail and how they might be administered to take account of individual circumstances. Often, this results in the employment of many new civil servants to administer all the new regulations and systems required. After a while the government discovers it needs to cut costs and these new civil servants return to the ranks of the not-technically-fully-employed. At this point we rediscover the initial problem is much as it was before.
