Last night was incredibly depressing watching so many Labour MPs abstain in the voting of the Welfare Bill, it may not have been the final bill but it sent out the message that Labour won't stand up for the most needy, although it does need cutting, some of the proposed cuts are quite brutal. Cutting working tax credits is wrong, cutting child benefit for more than 2 children is wrong, cutting housing benefit for the young when the minimum wage is for 25years plus is wrong. The Government got less than 30% of the vote, Labour needs to realise this and do what is right. By abstaining it may as well have been a yes vote as it means the same thing.
