Reverse bequests

From Iain Duncan Smith's resignation letter --

You are aware that I believe the cuts would have been even fairer to younger families and people of working age if we had been willing to reduce some of the benefits given to better-off pensioners but I have attempted to work within the constraints that you and the chancellor set.

Incidentally, the IDS resignation is an important lesson to American "Social Justice Conservatives:" when a fairness instinct runs up against austerity madness, the latter wins.
