David Cameron's father and the Panama tax haven scandal

It strikes me that the news coverage of the fallout from the Panorama Panama tax havens disclosures
is descending into, "You show me yours, and I'll show you mine" on tax returns.

This Government is cutting disability benefits and sanctioning people. Even without that State terrorism,27 per cent of single parents have a disability, compared with 21 per cent of couple parents

Revd Paul Nicolson of Taxpayers Against Poverty has already written regarding lack of adequate nutrition for pregnant parents in Tottenham, etc.

By contrast, whatever the legalities, David Cameron's father had enough to live on to stash money away offshore and was a 'huge inspirational' 'glass half full,' inspirational figure, role model for the current Prime Minister.

Some people have much larger glasses than others, and yet still insist on depriving others of already inadequate incomes. Evidence-gathering for 'welfare to work' 'welfare reform', meanwhile, is policy-driven.

    I think you are right Alan. I'm hoping we can make this point in response to Stephen Crabb's speech tomorrow.

    Another story today (see Dispatches tonight) about fit-to-work tests. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/fitness-work-assessors-mock-disabled-7730136 which highlight all too well the double standards.
