William Hague tells us to work harder
"There's only one growth strategy - work hard! And do more with less - that's the 21st century ... We're trying to rescue the work ethic just in the nick of time.
"With the introduction of the universal benefit next year, with the cap on benefits that we're bringing in, this is part of making sure we are recreating the work ethic for everybody in Britain.
"I think that these reforms will be seen in the 2020's as being as important to this country as the trade Union reforms and privatisations were of the 1980s. This is as fundamental as that.
This is the purpose of the coalition government."

Why is it when a right-wing administration goes off the rails they always trot out the usual phrases-'we need to work harder', 'we need to put our message over more clearly'?. Basically, this government's austerity drive has depressed, not revived, the economy and they have been fully exposed in the limelight as corrupt and inept. Hague's piece is nothing but waffle and flannel as the party bosses seek to deflect attention away from a prime minister as useless as Alec Douglas-Home.
