Top 10 articles of the week – 12/07/2013

This week we’ve seen some interesting new research released on public perceptions of (amongst other areas) benefit take up, crime and immigration, an announcement by the Chancellor, George Osborne that plans for a transferable tax allowance for married couples will be announced in the upcoming Autumn Statement, and a plethora of other interesting bits of news, analysis and opinion. With this as a backdrop, here are my top 10 articles for the last seven days (bar one or two which despite falling outside this window I felt were worthy of inclusion.) Thanks for reading, please feel free to leave a comment if you wish!
