Labour MP Simon Danczuk supports Osborne’s benefits delay

Simon DanczukNo, it’s not April 1st. George Osborne’s alteration of the three-day delay for claiming benefits following unemployment has already been savaged as a “growth plan for food banks”.

Yet according to Simon Danczuk, Labour MP for Rochdale and fresh from a questionable parliamentary selection prior to the 2010 general election campaign, this is “fair enough”.

 

Danczuk is, to our knowledge, the only Labour MP to be taking such a position. But that doesn’t stop him getting defensive. He then describes an approaching radio debate with Independent columnist and Chavs author Owen Jones as “taking lessons in life from a posh journalist who hasn’t had a real job”. Very mature, especially coming from the former chief exec of a “research, public affairs and communications consultancy”!
