Persuasive evidence from SPeye Joe:

Universal Credit can’t work, never could and never will. It has to be abandoned.

The policy is incompetence writ large, an ideological farrago from the dangerous mind of Iain Duncan Smith who took the simple hypothesis of let’s make ‘welfare’ a one-stop shop and ran with it and promoted it at every turn despite the facts that:

(a) Universal Credits design totally forgot all forms of supported housing in its development, and

(b) UC forgot the non take-up rates of ‘welfare’ that means Universal Credit will pay out over £30 billion per year more, and

(c) It is far more complex than the legacy welfare benefit system it sought to simplify, and

(d) It is at least 5 years over time and at least £3 billion over budget and despite Iain Duncan Smith saying at every turn that Universal Credit is on time and on budget.
