The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released its latest figures on Universal Credit. But on the same day, a Labour MP issued a stark warning: that “evictions are inevitable” if Universal Credit is rolled out. And the DWP’s own figures make the Labour MP’s damning warning seem highly likely.
The DWP: “stuck in Victorian times”

On Tuesday 11 September, Labour MP for Liverpool Walton Dan Carden led a Westminster Hall parliamentary debate on the rollout of Universal Credit. The controversial benefit, which replaces six existing benefits, has repeatedly come under fire from campaigners, trade unions and others. But the DWP is carrying on with its rollout regardless.

The only thing that will halt UC is a general election and a change of government. Can`t see that happening unless something big happens.
