“No right to live on welfare money”

According to Minister James Purnell of the Department of Work and Pensions, this is a major change in the welfare state. He boasted that even the Thatcher and Major governments had not dared to go so far.

In a press statement that sounded ominously like a military confrontation between the U.S. and Iraq, Hungary’s leading webzine iNteRNeTTo announced a "Victory without a fight" to.
