Means-test welfare reform is a costly waste, says Peter Beresford

Once, when people talked about welfare reform, it meant trying to improve the lives of people as service users, citizens and claimants. Now it is more likely to mean another attack on people on benefits or a search for an easy way of making public spending cuts. But we can expect to hear much more about welfare reform in the coming months, with a general election pending and politicians on the lookout for easy targets for party-political points scoring and economies.
