“The welfare reforms, which would be better labelled as welfare cuts, are taking place with vengeance in the UK today. Many decisions have been made and are being acted on. Because of such rapid change work published just a few years ago will now be very outdated. In the search for who has blood on their hands when it comes to dismantling the welfare state and implementing austerity, ‘Cash Not Care’ shines a light on the murky world of the private companies and their allies in the civil service. Mo’s account is both harrowing and informative, and it is urgently needed.”
