The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is in for a stormy weekend. Because it’s going to be under yet more fire over its most controversial benefit reform. And then there’s the Labour Party conference, which may just throw a spanner in the works for the department’s plans.
The DWP: enough is enough

As The Canary has documented, Universal Credit is the DWP’s flagship policy, rolling six previous benefits into one. It’s been dogged by scandal and failings, leading to calls for it to be scrapped. Most recently, the DWP revealed that it’s now reviewing the deaths of claimants who were on the benefit.

For many people, enough is now enough. Once again, they’ll be taking to Twitter to express their anger over the DWP and Universal Credit. On Saturday 22 September from 7pm people can tell the world about life on Universal Credit using the hashtag #ScrapUniversalCredit.
