At Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) on Wednesday 24 October, Theresa May made some bold claims about the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Sadly for her, a fact-checking site had already debunked them before she’d even opened her mouth.
The DWP: May leaps in

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was pushing the PM about Universal Credit. He put it to her that:

Two weeks ago, the prime minister told the House that people on Universal Credit will be protected. The very next day, the secretary of state for work and pensions said some people will be worse off on Universal Credit.

Which statement is true?

A rattled May, after sneering at shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry, dived head-first into a defence of the DWP’s contentious policy. She said that Labour criticises the benefit:

because they don’t want to know what happens in terms of Universal Credit.

200,000 more people into work. 700,000 people getting the extra money they’re entitled to. And one million disabled households get more money per month.

We’re not replicating the old system. Because the old system didn’t work. This is a system that helps people into work, and makes sure work pays.

Now lets take a closer look at what May said; ................

200,000 more people into work.
On Minimum Wages; Zero Hours Contracts, With insufficient income to Pay there Rent, Feed, Heat & Cloth Themselves

700,000 people getting the extra money they’re entitled to.
After Long delays, Payment Errors, Stress & Anxiety

And one million disabled households get more money per month.
As long as they pass stringent tests, and Assessments, carried out by Untrained and Unqualified people.

Now we know for certain what May means. :angry:

"700,000 people getting the extra money they’re entitled to."
