Compassion in action

The European Social Modell – see it in Action

Social Policy

From the Daily Telegraph, 5th March 2015:

Iain Duncan Smith: Taking people off benefits is ‘compassionate’. 

… for too long it has been assumed that compassion is “soft” …  There is nothing compassionate about increasing dependency by spending more of taxpayers’ money …    No – Conservative compassion is about getting someone back to work, taking the tough choices to move someone clear of the benefits system.

From the Mirror, 6th March 2015:

Father killed himself after his benefits were cut and he was threatened with eviction

A father-of-three killed himself after his benefits were cut and he was threatened with eviction.  … Mr McDonald’s benefits had been stopped by the Department of Work and Pensions …   A spokesman for mental health charity Mind said: “It would be helpful to see what could be going wrong in the benefits system that leads to these tragic situations.”
