Boris, cleansing & fairness

I find it unbelievable that Boris Johnson chooses the words 'Balkan' and 'cleansing' to describe capping housing benefits at nearly £21,000 per year. No doubt he has his reasons. And will soon be apologising. Again.

This is not about singling out low income and welfare dependent people - it's just about treating them exactly the same as everyone else explains Alex Morton in an blog for the Spectator. Worth reading.
