Old habits die hard and I was going to write something about the Tory press reaction to the prospect of the ending of the universality of child benefits. But I see I am too late. Roy Greenslade got there first.
But I would like to add that the Daily Mail did get a bit confused. Yes, there was a “growing backlash” and a strongly worded leader. But then the welfare scrounger agenda got mixed up with it in the story headlined: As millions of decent families face benefits cuts, one woman who’s never worked in her life is investing hers… in a £4,500 boob job.
