For the first time, we will introduce a limit on the total amount of benefits any one family can receive. And the limit will be set according to this very simple principle. Unless they have disabilities to cope with, no family should get more from living on benefits than the average family gets from going out to work.

No more open-ended chequebook. A maximum limit on benefits for those out of work, set at the level that the average working family earns.

Money to families who need it, but not more money than families who go out to work. That is what the British people mean by fair - and we will be the first government in history to bring it about.

And then a fews secs later he tweets:

My understanding: benefit cap will be about £500 per week post tax Introduced by 2013,
tens of thousands affected

A total benefit cap confirmed on BBC News at 1pm. Set 'at the average earnings of a working family'. Thus around £500 a week.

Excludes disabilities.

Give money to the banks, support the arms industry, smash the peasants. Nice.

Sounds like good old class war to me.

Hush - it is only class war when the poor ask for some more crumbs from the table.

When a politician who has never had a proper job, and is the heir to a fortune, lectures the poor about their "lifestyle" choices then it is strong governance.

Being reported on politicshome that it does include LHA, so if a family gets the max 400 per week LHA they then get 93 quid a week max in addition.

That probably won't even cover the council tax...

Can't see this happening, they'll all move over on disability/sickness bennies to get round it.

But, but but, we can't cap bankers bonuses innit.

That is because all Govt's like the cash banks generate to be paid in bonuses because it is taxed at 40 to 50%. Whereas if they keep the cash as profits it is paid at 28% for corp tax.

More money to pay for the welfare state with bonuses, this is why McDoom encouraged the worlds banking elite to move to London.
