Reductio necessarum

The lib-tory government is doing the usual: rattling the paddle at benefit fraudsters, which will achieve little I imagine. Going after the fraudsters is all very well, but what about the ones we read about in certain newspapers who are scooping thousands and living it up, breeding irresponsibly and all within the bloody rules?

It plays to the gallery for the government to act tough, and gives the leftists a chance to wag the finger at tax-dodgers, so everyone's happy. I doubt the government has the power, the inclination or the virtue to properly reduce the welfare state (to rubble, ideally).
