"No alternative to cutting disabled and ill people's benefits. Really?

Targeting people with terminal illness might be so awful as to be a tactical manoeuvre. It's hard for campaigners to tell."

Tax relief on pensions is a government incentive to encourage people to do the right thing - make a long term investment for their future.

The changes to offshore tax reform are intended to make the corporate tax system the most competitive in the G20 and attract multinationals to the UK.

I think both are good things, and therefore can't agree with the suggestion that these are key alternative areas to make savings.
