RIP the Welfare State?
100 years ago, the people of Britain fought for, and secured, The People’s Budget. The Conservative Party opposed it at every turn. Today, a century later, they launch their biggest yet assault on the public services they have spent a century opposing. But we will be there. The British people won’t roll over. Because the history of the last century in this country is a history of ordinary people standing up for the services on which our civilisation is built. Because public services aren’t just a decree from Westminster but a part of our daily lives. Because the people of this country know that fighting for public services is a public service. That fight goes on.
