David Gauke signals he will press on with universal credit
Work and pensions secretary says benefit changes are ‘transforming lives’ after MPs called for a pause in their introduction

The work and pensions secretary has signalled that the government will press ahead with controversial welfare changes, insisting the system of universal credit is “making work pay and transforming lives”.

Responding to a letter signed by 30 Labour MPs and the Green co-leader Caroline Lucas, expressing concerns about UC and calling for its implementation to be paused, David Gauke underlined his commitment to the policy.

“Getting UC right is a priority for me,” he said. “UC is revolutionising the welfare system by making work pay and transforming lives. Those on UC are moving into work significantly faster and working longer than under the old system. Only through this balanced approach can we as a country provide effective and holistic support for families and individuals to enter the world of work while ensuring fairness for the taxpayer.”

So they are providing an effective and holistic support are they? What a bloody laugh. Holistic....they don`t know the meaning of the word. Mental torture would be more appropriate. Doesn`t surprise me this Gawke won`t halt anything or change anything. He`s a Tory. Anyone tasked with the position of work and pensions minister has to be a certain kind of cretin to be controlled by those higher up in the chain. All they do is drive the machine forward and lie as they go along.

Destroying social housing is one of the aim of this policy, it is going to get very messy.

It`s became a toxic mix of controlled conditionality claiming any benefits these days and when the roof over our head suddenly becomes involved like a revolving door, then something isn`t right. But then they don`t honestly care, do they? So dig in everyone and never allow them to win.
