The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is starting to face the wrath of local Labour parties. Meanwhile, the Labour leadership appears to be in chaos over it. Is a showdown looming?
The DWP: under pressure

On 10 October, the Consett branch of north west Durham Constituency Labour Party (CLP) passed a motion on Universal Credit. It called for its CLP to support it in calling for the national party to make scrapping Universal Credit policy:

Universal Credit has reached a point where it is so fundamentally flawed, it cannot be fixed. It is seeing people from all cross sections of society… forced into poverty, financial hardship and debt.
Labour must propose a radical ethical alternative social security system that truly works in the interest of claimants. My hope is that momentum can continue to be gathered around this issue following the comments of John McDonnell. I hope Labour will adopt a manifesto commitment to scrap Universal Credit.
I have approached other CLP’s to put similar motions forward so that we can collectively campaign to scrap it. We must be the party standing up for the whole of society.

And if they don`t, we`re all going to be living our lives under a constant cloud of anxiety.
