Happiness is a warm giro

There's something very distasteful in the Fawcett Society's case against the government's budget. Having read their analysis, it seems to boil down to this: women are the main 'beneficiaries' of the bloated dependency culture created by big government socialism, therefore cutting it back will affect them worse than men.

Their whole argument is predicated on massive state intervention, and marinated in victimhood. As far as they're concerned, equality means the government playing the role of breadwinner, rather than a particular man. They want wealth redistribution through high taxes and generous benefits - in other words they want a Labour government back in power. Tough titty, ladies. They lost, and before they lost, they spent all the money, so there's no point demanding a bigger slice of the cake - there ain't no fucking cake.
