Cut Out : Living Without Welfare, Paperback Book

Cut Out : Living Without Welfare Paperback

Part of the Left Book Club series


Britain's welfare state, one of the greatest achievements of our post-war reconstruction, was regarded as the cornerstone of modern society.

Today, that cornerstone is wilfully being dismantled by a succession of governments, with horrifying consequences.

The establishment paints pictures of so-called 'benefit scroungers', the disabled, the sickly and the old. In Cut Out: Living Without Welfare, Jeremy Seabrook speaks to people whose support from the state - for whatever reason - is now being withdrawn, rendering their lives unsustainable.

In turns disturbing, eye-opening, and ultimately humanistic, these accounts reveal the reality behind the headlines, and the true nature of British politics today. Published in partnership with the Left Book Club.
