It’s Westminster’s dirty little secret: the Right is right

 

What is going on here? In the course of one week, we have heard Ed Miliband embracing welfare reform, Alan Milburn condemning the retreat from a more market-based NHS, Tony Blair endorsing Tory plans to increase private sector involvement in the public services and – good grief – Ed Balls calling for a tax cut. (Did that last one really happen? Maybe I dreamt it.)

    Telegraph writer Janet Daley concludes:

    —-extract starts—
    Yet it is precisely that endlessly courted constituency of “hard-working families” that is ready to hear the truth – which is why Mr Miliband and Mr Balls have decided to tailor their pitch to them….
    —-extract ends—-

    I would argue that the reality is that the term “hard-working families” is really being used by those who want to set up divide-and-rule conflict that subverts opposition to the turning of a welfare state to protect the vulnerable into a welfare state for the wealthy.
