Can we afford any more mitigation?

Lib Dem claims to be the moderating force within the Westminster coalition are standard fare. Yet it will be interesting to see how the call by MP Paul Burstow to means-test winter fuel payments can be cast in this light by party spinners.

According to the Beeb, the proposal is to switch the savings made from cutting back on fuel payments into partly funding social care packages in England. Presumably the remainder will be spent on hypothermia treatment.
