What does ‘contributory welfare’ mean? | Liberal... →
The idea behind ‘the contributory principle’ where ‘you get out what you put in’ sees the welfare state as a kind of insurance system. It is intended to appeal to people who, in Labour minister Liam Byrne’s words, ‘feel like they put an awful lot more in than they get back’. It appears that by ‘contribution’, Labour means ‘pay national insurance’. In practice, this means a welfare system which...

Bob Neill MP: Statement on the Marriage (Same Sex... →
This is my local MP’s reasoning for voting against the same sex marriage bill. He is worried that churches will be forced to marry same sex couples when they just don’t want to.
