Tory voters who are employees really are the stupidest people on the planet. If that’s you, I’m very sorry but go and look in the mirror and understand that you’re looking at a fool.
You see, these people voted for a government that dumped around one and a half million of them onto Universal Credit – the so-called benefit that the Tories actually use to persecute people who have been plunged into poverty – as soon as the Covid-19 crisis hit.
Now 63 per cent of those people – and you can bet that many of them voted ‘Conservative’ like good little sheeple in December 2019 – are having cash removed from their benefit payments.
The money is being used to repay loans they took out – advances of their Universal Credit payments are loans, you see – to cover their living costs or outstanding debts while they endured the five-week delay the Tories impose on everybody who claims.
1,060,000 ‘Covid claimants’ have a deduction of some kind from their UC. Of those, 810,000 are repaying an advance only, 50,000 have a deduction for another reason and 200,000 have deductions to repay a UC advance and another debt.
It means a million people are trying to live on payments that are less than their assessed benefit need.
That is to say that the Department for Work and Pensions has worked out that they need a particular amount but is refusing to let them have it.
DWP officers do this on the orders of the Conservative government – voted for, most likely, by a majority of the claimants who are now being forced into poverty and starvation.
I wonder how Tory-voting UC claimants feel if they are also parents – knowing that their vote in 2019 is also forcing their children to go without.
(The information on the so-called “Covid claimants” has been compiled by Child Poverty Action Group for the Covid Realities research project).
The worst part of it is that these absolute dimwits are so tribal that they will almost certainly defend their 2019 decision and repeat the mistake, first chance they get. There is no reasoning with them.

You’re not trying to tell us that Starmer’s Labour, top-heavy with resurgent Right-wingers would do any better I hope!!
There is absolutely no chance of me suggesting that in any way.
As you should know very well, This Writer considers Starmer’s Labour Party to be a disaster.
They won’t be following this site either, sadly.
Well if these sheeple people that voted Tory scum are now caught up in the universal so-called Credit nightmare well they have no one to blame!!!
They are getting bugger all money while demanding they apply for every crap job out there no matter if it’s nothing like what their skills and training is for well they voted for this vile system. SO boo Hoo!
Maybe they after this treatment of seeing for what they voted up close might never vote for the scumbag Tory party. Who am I kidding? These morons will like sheep vote Tory again….!
Whot about all those who don’t even try to claim because they won’t pay anything to them talking to a 55 yr old telling me he can’t claim bugger all and that he’s never claimed in his life yet another young girl with two children tells me she can’t claim has she told them truthfully that she works for 3 pound a he oh we truly In the shit
