A curate’s egg over benefits reduction

Share this article

I WATCHED the Eastbourne MP on the BBC Sunday’s Politics Show talking about unemployment and the future reduction of benefits.

He admitted that he had voted for the change in benefits.

When he was asked if it was bad, he said that it was only bad in parts. You will remember that’s what the curate said when he was asked about his egg.

Following his recent claim of success in promoting apprenticeships, he did also say he was surprised at the very bad unemployment figures for Eastbourne.

So are those results only bad in parts?
