    Means testing for a range of things is a good idea,especially housing and benefits but it seems the Government has avoided this as it would be unpopular amongst the people who are vocal about their 'rights' to free everything.Rights used to be coupled with Responsibility but no longer is this the case and it shows in the shortfall of money coming in and going out that we now find ourselves trying to address.
