If you’re not moved by this report, you’re not human.

The realities of Universal Credit, exposed by BBC News (reluctantly; they do their best to make it look good but after the report about Holly Sargeant, there’s no salvaging it):

Imagine being without money for eight months, left dependent on the support of foodbanks and family, and forced to sell your treasured belongings just to survive.

Theresa May claims universal credit is “working”, but try telling that to this mum who can’t even have her own child sleep over because of how this flawed system has torn her asunder.

That’s the reality faced by Holly Sargeant, who due to “administrative errors” by the Department for Work and Pensions and her poor mental health hasn’t received a single penny in support for several months.

You have to watch the following video from BBC News to believe how seriously flawed this new system really is.
