When is nanny state not nanny state?
When dealing with beneficiaries.
Especially those who repeatedly prove they can't budget themselves and like Oliver Twist- keep asking for more. (Perhaps we should bring back the Beadle)
It's no use crying out about losing your independence, as some teenage mendicants have. You ain't independent when you are not paying your way.
Thus when the source of your funding lays down conditions- suck it up- or get a job.
Ought to be the case for all those sucking on the public teat...
