-----cut the invalidity pension, axed the bereavement grant, took medical cards off the sick, the elderly and the terminally ill, cut the one-parent family benefit for children over the age of seven, cut the clothing and footwear allowance and cut the carer's allowance. The full list of cuts the Labour Party made while in government is too long to outline in the short time I have. By any accounts this is a shameful record but it is a thoroughly shameful record for a party that claims to represent the working class.
