Today the party conference season came to an end as David Cameron delivered his address to the Tory faithful in Birmingham.
Yet again, Beveridge was on the agenda with the Prime Minister promising welfare reforms “just as profound as those of Beveridge 60 years ago.” (actually, 70 years)
David Cameron went on to update Beveridge’s ‘Giant Evils’ for 2012. Instead of Squalor, Ignorance, Want, Idleness and Disease, Cameron offered Unfairness, Injustice and Bureaucracy as the key challenges for our society.
We’re delighted to see all the parties picking up on the National Conversation agenda. Next week, we’ll find out what people beyond the Westminster Bubble have to say about the future of welfare.
