That Boy George

I have a new post over at Oncemore.

I had expected good things from George Osborne, the obscenely young 34 year old Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, however, I may need to reconsider. He is right to question why people earning up to £66,000 need to receive a means tested benefit, however, he is totally wrong in his reasoning. The BBC reports him as saying "We really should be asking ourselves whether taxpayers on average incomes of £15,000 should be providing means-tested benefits to people earning up to £66,000 a year".
