Our lives keep on changing - yet the welfare myth of 'them' and 'us' persists, John Hills

When ‘welfare’ is discussed, the theme of a divided ‘them’ and ‘us’ of those who pay in, and those who pay out – runs across British political debate, a hundred tabloid front pages and through a dozen TV programmes focussed on an assumed unchanging ‘welfare-dependent’ underclass.  But the evidence looks rather different, for example only one pound in every £14.70 we spend on the welfare state now goes on cash payments to out of work non-pensioners. In reality our lives are ever-changing. John Hills discusses this 'welfare myth' in a post for the LSE British Politics and Policy blog to mark the release of a revised and updated edition of his book Good Times, Bad Times: the welfare myth of them and us.
