The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) boss Amber Rudd doesn’t have the best of times on Twitter. But after a Labour MP took her department to task, she hit back. She’s probably now wishing she hadn’t.
The DWP: an “outrage”

As The Canary previously reported, Labour MP Chris Williamson criticised the DWP and its contentious benefit Universal Credit on RT‘s Going Underground show. Host Afshin Rattansi raised the Peabody Trust’s analysis that over 100,000 children could be left in hardship this Christmas. This, it said, was due to delays in the DWP paying people on Universal Credit.

Williamson called the situation an “outrage”, saying:

Universal Credit in my opinion needs to be completely scrapped. We need a root and branch revision of our social security system… It’s completely broken… Frankly it shames Britain.

With all of the news articles about Ms Rudds(MP) views on Brexit strategy , I was under the impression that Ms Amber Rudd was the: “British politician serving as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions since 16 November 2018” according to Wikipedia. However, in the news she seems to be commenting more on ‘Brexit’ than the job in hand of sorting out the ‘Universal Credit’ shambles. Is it just me to whom feel that she should be trying to sort this out, her job you could say. Or is she trying to get the position of Brexit secretary instead, and pass the buck to someone else. :S

I don`t think we can expect any change in our position Dude unless Brexit causes a crash and another party take over the helm before we fall over the cliff edge.. That seems to be our only hope of anything happening within UC and seeing it stopped or scrapped altogether, but the sceptic in me tells me even if the government did change parties (to Labour for example) things wouldn`t change overnight.
