Let's expand the welfare state

So says Gordon Brown by announcing a "National Care Service" modelled on the award winning (!) NHS.

Obviously the UK is running surpluses, taxes are low and there is an overwhelming need that couldn't be met by ensuring the incentives are right for people to save for their own care.

Obviously Gordon Brown thinks the British electorate is full of idiots who can't look at record public debt and record budget deficits and think, how the hell are you meant to be able to afford a huge expansion of the welfare state?

Some think it was only the Greek government that lied about public finances.
