I posted this tweet last night:

On Cameron’s logic and in Osborne’s rhetoric it’s the fault of the staff of HMV, Jessops and Comet that they should now be facing benefit cuts.

We should hang our heads in shame at the failure of what we once called social security.

Now neoliberalism peddles fear through the encouragement of contempt when our duty is to care.
