UK Labour shuns bludgers

senior Labour MP in the UK?has said what a Labour leader in New Zealand should say.

That Labour supports and represents working people.

In an interview with the Guardian, the shadow work and pensions secretary laid out plans to slash the number of food banks operating in the UK if Labour comes to power. She said she felt it was a sign of “failed welfare state” that so many people in Britain were using them.

“We are not the party of people on benefits. We don?t want to be seen, and we’re not, the party to represent those who are out of work,” she said. ?

“Labour are a party of working people, formed for and by working people.”

Right now most people think Labour supports the indolent, bludgers, criminals, social lobby groups and wastrels.

It used to be that Labour represented working people…it is where the party came from.

Smart words…no doubt sacrilege to many on the left.
