    Michael Gove is a prime example of an upper class Tory twerp.

    Gove forgets that the whole point of the benefits system is to provide for people who can’t manage their lives successfully.

    So when the Labour decided to provide support to schools, CAB’s etc to give financial management advice its good – when the Tories do it its bad.

    Left Foot Forward carrying adverts encouraging readers to beat NHS queues by signing up for private insurance? I am not impressed. Either this is a left wing forum espousing basic socialist values or it is just a fancy logo and a way for a few people to entertain themselves and probably make a bit of money on the side – I am seriously considering dropping the connection and would encourage others to do the same.
