Nick “Dickens” Clegg

More of that, erm, non-inflammatory language from the coalition government today, with this offer from Nick Clegg:

Welfare needs to become an engine of mobility, changing people’s lives for the better, rather than a giant cheque written by the state to compensate the poor for their predicament.

Compensate “the poor” for their “predicament”?

It’s like living in a Dickens novel.
