Here’s a reminder that, while the candidates in the Conservative leadership contest are trying to make themselves attractive to their colleagues in Parliament, their policies are still hammering the people of the UK.

The Independent is reporting that a woman was made homeless because Tory cuts in housing benefit meant she was having to use money intended to cover costs like food and clothing to bridge the £35-a-week gap between her housing benefit and her rent.

When the money failed to stretch and she lost her home, Birmingham City Council refused to help on the basis that she had become intentionally homeless, but the Supreme Court has ruled that its approach was unlawful.
