    Yeah, she got a hospital pass there. An absolutely indefensible position.

    Haven't been posting about Universal Credit because it's just too miserable for words. Dreading its introduction in my area. Plenty of news stories about it in the Guardian, Independent, Mirror; Dawn Foster and Frances Ryan are just two of the admirable journalists who plug away at keeping this in the public eye.

    DWP is launching another legal challenge to block the publication of reports; these ones deal with UC

    They appeal so much stuff and it costs loads.


    Massive impact of legal aid cuts on benefit cases


    Strictly speaking this is about legal aid, but the connection is explicit in the headline. In some areas these cuts have completely fucked Citizens' Advice Bureaux and there is no longer any independent advice available for folk who need to challenge benefits decisions. They have to approach the council or DWP for advice on challenging... the council or DWP.

    Universal credit: Households to miss out on benefits over festive season

    Thousands of people on universal credit will not be paid over the festive season or will get a reduced payment.

    Those affected are among the 67,000 people who work and are paid weekly, the government says. Some will have to reapply for the benefit.

    That is because there are five paydays in December, so their monthly income will be too high to qualify - the benefit is based on a calendar month.

    Here. Let me sub-edit that.

    This is because Iain Duncan Smith, Stephen Crabb, and Damian Green are FUCKING CUNTS.

    The architects of the system were actually Lord Freud and his personal adviser, Dr Stephen Brien (who now works advising the Saudi government on economic and social policy).

    Must admit, the present government's attempt to render the political landscape as an episode of Yes, Prime Minister as written by an upper-class neo-Nazi sociopath is looking pretty impressive.

    Apparently the crumbling economy is all the fault of those dastardly disabled types...
