It's bureaucratic, ideologically-driven insanity.If it continues down "the rabbit hole" of state sponsored lunacy, they'll eventually have doctors sorting out those who go to the "showers" or not....
Ta Fire. There are good and bad things about this article, and I get the impression that the writer hadn't done much research for it. So a big improvement on most of the coverage we've seen!
Interesting development (can't recall if it was in the opinion piece above or not now). Hit the news in the past couple of days, that a govt. department had flagged Universal Credit with an 'Amber Warning'. Meaning that the chances of success were not as good as promised (my interpretation). Red meaning failure. Green meaning success likely.
DWP responded saying that the data upon which this had been based were 8 months old and that Universal Credit was on-track for successful implementation. So who knows? Disaster waiting to happen? Personally I have always believed a simple-system would be best - but I think it will be the computer-software that lets clients down.
There is much that can go wrong with this...
This is a good source for such information earlier ... I saw this article earlier. However do be warned that the editorials are becoming increasingly more strident, empassioned, and read like propaganda from our side. Sigh, things are getting tough for many over there. I wish I could do more.
The recent benefit reforms have really screwed over a lot of really sick and disabled people - it's hard to talk frankly about that without it sounding off-puttingly like propaganda. I'm sure that it does put some people off though.
