Cameron suggests cutting housing benefit

The prime minister has suggested that people under the age of 25 could lose the right to housing benefit, as part of moves to cut the welfare bill.

Scrapping the benefit for that age group would save almost 2bn a year.

In an interview in the Mail on Sunday, David Cameron said he wanted to stop those who were working from feeling resentment towards people on benefits.

Mr Cameron said the existing system was sending out "strange signals" on working, housing and families.

Because we all know the austerity measures have pushed England out of the Recession into a real vibrant economy... oh wait, no it hasn't... sorry for that chaps.
