    The trouble with universal credit, or should I say one of the many troubles, is that not many people understand what it entails. The media, in general, don’t attempt to explain it, if even they know any more. It is sold as being a much simpler method of payment, which most people would say is a good thing, but in reality it is anything but. As well as moving money away from original recipients, who were being paid it for good reasons, the payments being adjusted by so-called “real-time” analysis of claimants’ situations is far too complex, will not be adhered to by the various organisations reporting situations and is the reason for the squillions that IDS has wasted.

    Think in terms of UK Gov using Benifits as a means of control. And using Zero Hours Contracts with the withdrawal of the Humans Rights Act as a means of keeping the poor poor – but at the same time saying they’re doing anything/everything to “Help” [those that do not comply are labelled as workshy/too fat/druggies etc etc]

    The future is here and it ain’t looking good in these fair lands.

    Housing benefit and council tax benefit are not taxed so under Univeral credit those in work on low wages that have to claim benefits because of things like zero hours contracts will be worse of as their housing and council tax benefit will be given to them as part of Universal credit so be classed as income,therefore will be in their tax allowance .
