    Apropos of nothing, would this silly deluded woman be your local LibDem councillor, perhaps? If so she should damned well be ashamed of herself.

    • Yeah, she’s one of our local councillors (Gorton’s pretty much a clean sweep for the Lib Dems councillor-wise) – Jackie’s OK really, but she shouldn’t try defending the indefensible like that.
      I can see what she’s trying to do – and it *shouldn’t* be considered demeaning to clean streets, empty bins, etc. – but it’s still a fundamentally illiberal policy.
      I must write something on the current welfare reforms – they’re the usual mix of evil and wonderful in equal proportions – but won’t get round to it til at least next week. Too tired to phrase things properly in ways that won’t cause needless arguments.
