The DWP says anyone who thinks they are entitled to out-of-work benefit should contact Jobcentre Plus. But what happens to them then? [Image: Danny Lawson/PA.]

This is a question that deserves an answer – and a properly-researched, evidenced one at that.

For those who find it hard to read images, the text below reads:

“Isn’t it amazing?

“In between November 2013 and October 2017, 6,928,682 claimants took up a claim for Jobseeker’s Allowance and 7,649,611 came off Jobseeker’s Allowance – so we have 720,979 fewer jobseekers?

“However, in the same period 569,000 Employment & Support Allowance claimants registered a ‘Mandatory Reconsideration’ (MR) dispute. Most would be expected to claim Jobseeker’s Allowance until their dispute resulted in a decision.

“But still this massive reduction in Jobseeker’s Allowance?”

Can anybody explain this apparent miracle?
