Typical Tories: They owe benefit claimants a fortune but JUST WON’T PAY UP

I reckon there’s a reason for the Tory reluctance to pay benefit claimants on time – beyond their unnatural desire to make people suffer.

For them, it’s a simple business calculation.

The longer they delay payments, the less likely claimants are to need them – because they will either take any job they can get, out of desperation… or they will die.

Employment means they get to crow about the lowest jobless figures ever, and a dead claimant is a “positive benefit outcome”.

Either way, the Tories win.

Tory ministers have been told to “get a grip” after leaving claimants to wait months for disability payments in a benefits row.

One Universal Credit claimant is owed nearly £1,000 while another has been waiting nine months, MPs heard.

The row involves 13,000 disabled people who lost ‘Severe Disability Premiums’ when they moved to Universal Credit.

The government is offering them transition cash and a one-off “back payment” after accepting many of them lost out.

Yet months after the last claimants moved to UC in January, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) still hasn’t coughed up that extra money.
