So capping all benefits at 1% is fair, even though food and energy may increase annually at a higher rate? IDS added that benefits payable to pensioners, including the Winter Fuel Allowance, were not being capped because older people had “less flexibility” and did not have the option of finding work.

So is capping benefits simply a punishment for not having a job?

I suggest that we should all queue up outside IDS’s house at night to see if he really can sleep!
