Anti-Austerity

by: Daniel Pomlett on 29.01.18

Ending welfare cuts and demonization

Ending the bedroom tax and other disability cuts, LHA cuts, and ending the benefits cap should be priorities for the first day of a Labour government – and before. The party should be campaigning to end all punitive welfare cuts.

A comprehensive welfare state

We believe in place of the small state, we should instead be expanding the social security net, and considering universalist models for the future.
