    • 2018 January 19, Andy Beckett, “Post-work: the radical idea of a world without jobs”, in The Guardian[1]:
      Stronge suggests a daily routine for post-work citizens that would include a provocative degree of state involvement: “You get your UBI payment from the government. Then you get a form from your local council telling you about things going on in your area: a five-a-side football tournament, say, or community activism – Big Society stuff, almost.”
    • 2018 January 19, Kyle Lewis; Will Stronge, “A right-wing think tank is now supporting Universal Basic Income – but they’ve missed the point”, in The Independent[2]:
      Right-wing supporters of UBI, such as the Adam Smith Institute, will try to use it as a justification for further dismantling of the welfare state and for individualising society’s problems.
