Moral Judgements Have No Place in the Benefits System

David Cameron’s ugly speech on welfare benefits, and how the state has no business determining who is morally ‘good’ and ‘bad.’  Would love it if you would check it out, and ideally leave me a comment there on the site, tweet or facebook like it.  It really helps me if you do.  Many thanks..

How We All Started Working for Free

From workfare to internships, to the punishing number of unpaid overtime hours we are all working these days.  How unpaid labour was normalised.  My new piece on the Independent.  Would love it if you would click on the link and leave me a comment over there.  Thank you!
