Chancellor George Osborne has insisted the public backs controversial Government benefit reforms, after the Prime Minister wrote today that the reforms are "putting fairness back."
Mr Osborne, who came in for criticism after he linked the case of child killer Mick Philpott to welfare, insisted he does not "set out to be divisive".
In an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live, Mr Osborne claimed his views were "in tune with what the great majority of the country think and experience in their everyday lives".
He added: "I think it's striking that despite actually an attempt to get an alternative argument going this week, saying that all these changes to the welfare system over the last week have been unfair, the public don't accept that, the public agree with it."
