Very interesting cover story from The Economist. It gives all the usual reasons for the need to revamp public sector benefits, but this line in particular spoke to me: "With ageing populations needing ever more state help, the left should have as much interest as the right in an efficient state sector (perhaps more so, as it thinks government is the way to right society’s ills)."  Fiscal responsibility should not be "owned" by one political party or the other, as all sides benefit when taxpayer dollars are spent wisely.
