Green Party's citizens income policy "unworkable"

The Green Party's "citizens income" policy that would see everyone in the country guaranteed a minimum income of £72 per week has been described as "unworkable" by an economic think tank.

The Citizen's Income Trust said that the policy would cost the British Treasury about £280bn and would leave the poorest in society worse off than they currently are. After nearly four years under a Tory government, making poor people poorer is quite an achievement.

Looks like this is another one to add to the growing list of deluded and dangerous Green policies.
