UK Labour leader to support welfare cap

The leader of Britainâ„¢s Labour Party Ed Miliband has pledged support for Conservativeâ„¢s welfare cap if he becomes Prime Minister in 2015 general election.

Miliband admitted the public’s faith in the welfare system has been Å“shaken” as it apparently gives Å“something for nothing”. He then said he would drive down rents and crack down on low pay in attempts to ease the burden on the British taxpayer.

Miliband also noted that reversing the coalition’s child benefit cuts for higher earners is not his partyâ„¢s priority if he wins back power, adding that “the next Labour government will use a 3-year cap on structural welfare spending to help control costs”.

However, at Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons, Cameron accused the Labour leader of being totally confused.

“[Miliband initially] attacked me for taking child benefit away from higher earners and yet today we learn it is now Labour’s official policy to take child benefit away from higher earners. Total and utter confusion,” Cameron said.
