Bad language

Bozza has rightly been pulled up for comparing changes to Housing Benefit to what happened in Kosovo. Whatever we might think about the ConDems' policy, it is not reasonable to compare it to ethnic cleansing.

But why then is it considered OK for the ConDems to compare the difference between public and private sector pension provision to apartheid? It's equally inappropriate, innit?

And who used such inflammatory language? Err....
The Tory leader told the Manchester meeting: "My vision over time is to move increasingly towards defined contribution rather than final salary schemes." He added: "We have to end the apartheid in pensions."
