O futuro do estado do benestar
Meanwhile, on BBC2, John Humphrys was examining who in our own country needs a good slap or not. The Future State of Welfare, presented by the former working-class boy from Splott (I know – home town of Shirley Bassey too! Surely an embarrassment of riches), examined whether Britain's welfare system had strayed too far from its original Beveridgian aims of slaying the five giant evils of want, ignorance, squalor, idleness and disease, and bred instead a culture of entitlement that has caused the benefits bill to increase by £60bn over the last decade. The programme had commissioned a Mori poll to prove how much more unsympathetic the public mood has become towards those on benefits, but the truest barometer was the existence of the programme itself, which asked as overtly as I have yet seen whether there is a distinction to be drawn once again between the deserving and the undeserving poor. No word yet on who gets to decide that, or on how close to the bone we must cut everything to make sure not one chancer gets a single unearned penny from the state, but I'm sure we'll all find out over the next few bleak, bleak years.
