More and more taken from those ‘less able’ in society, with every stroke of the Tory Technocratic pen? Those, seemingly, deemed as ‘inefficient’ in society being cast into the reject pile, while the neoliberal treasure chests are pushing at the seems with a prosperity that should have been safe within the Public Purse?
As Tory policy betrays more and more of those on Welfare, and seeking Social Service support, we are reminded of the misleading nature of the Party who control our lives?
Esther McVey MP has shown her contempt for the less able and disabled, and with her Party’s support she continues to disable people’s lives. Every aspect of Tory control leaves a taste of poison lingering with intent?
Universal Credit has got to be the greatest injustice to be imposed on the British people and, as it continues to inflict pain on those who are desperate for help, we see Tory tormentors pressing on with their torturous denials of its benefits? As with all Tory run public initiatives, their underfunding and irrelevant tinkering proves their inability to serve the people who depend on them?
Tony Blair is not going to ‘save’ the UK from anything. His presence is toxic and serves only himself and, it is suggested, the lobbying mantras of the Arms and Government overthrowing services of foreign governments?

A family being evicted from their ‘tied’ farm, to allow Duke to sell off the farm that their family has farmed for years. They are due to retire in 5 yrs but seem fated to lose ‘their’ farm. This may well be a ‘legal’ action but it seems to fall way short of ‘common decency’?

Recently contacted my MP, for clarification on the roll-out of Universal Credit.
His response is attached and the fact of whether the suffering will be ceased is still uncertain?
What is clear, is the banishing of the UC principals are not going to stop. The roll-out continues and Tory unpredictability will, seemingly, continue to affect those in the most vulnerable of situations?
What is your feelings about UC, or the affects it has had on the people on Welfare? What would you believe will happen, in the future, for those in most need?
Response, from David Duguid MP, as follows:-
Dear Andrew Whaley-Coates,
Thank you for your email about Universal Credit. The UK Government has recognised that there have been teething problems in its introduction and rollout, and I was very pleased to hear the Chancellor pledge to address them in his Budget speech.
As you have probably seen in the media, he has promised an additional £6.6 billion, over the next six years, to ensure the introduction of the new system goes smoothly.
£1bn will be given over five years to the Department for Work and Pensions to help ease the transition from the old to the new system.
In addition, the work allowance – the amount claimants can earn before Universal Credit begins to be withdrawn – is to be increased by £1,000 a year, at a cost of £1.7bn annually. This means 2.4 million working parents and people with disabilities will be better off by £630 per year.
There are also measures to help people who are repaying debts. These include reducing the maximum rate at which deductions can be made from a Universal Credit reward from 40 per cent to 30 per cent.
I have visited Banff Job Centre, where Universal Credit has recently been rolled out, and was pleased to find the staff there are confident that, after observing the roll out in Inverness, they can anticipate and address issues when and if they arise in Banff and Buchan.
If you know of anyone who is having problems with their own Universal Credit, do please ask them to contact me. I will do what I can to help in individual cases.
Member of Parliament for Banff and Buchan
If you have a view or a concern about Universal Credit, or maybe you feel being on UC is making your life uncertain. Please drop him a note (email).
Too many Welfare claimants have been forced into a miserable existence, on Universal Credit. Time has past, promises broken and parliament still failing to halt a austerity that actually kills people?
MP’s have a duty to their constituents and to humanity, to provide safe communities and policy that protects those within it.
Do YOU have mounting problems with Universal Credit? Struggling with your claim for Welfare payments or being reassessed as ‘fit to work’ by inconsiderate/ignorant reviewers?
Don’t suffer in silence. Take your difficulties and force them back on to this irresponsible Tory Party and their Technocratic methods. Your claim deserves more respect and a Tory Gov’t is not going to provide it. Direct Message (DM) Claudia Tanner and let her champion your corner. The more voices, and information she hears the more people will understand the inadequacy of the Tories.
They are known to be inhumane and, as the UN has stated, they are denying millions a decent lifestyle, preferring to encourage homelessness, hunger, poverty and ill health by enforcing a austerity that has no place in the 6th richest Country in the World?
While they live the life of prosperity and privilege, the Public struggle with poverty and an uncertain future.
As our lives take, what we all think is a turn for the worst, remember that there are thousands (probably millions) of people feeling that life was dealing them the wrong cards? If we all had faith, in each other’s motives, we would know our best chances would be bolstered by a strong community.
Unfortunately, we are undermined by our-selves, our education, our environment, our work, and our government? Constant confirmation of what we ‘cannot do’ and occasionally what we can do, imprints who we will be in the future.
The saving grace, is if our personality drives us away from others and chance serves us opportunity that we can take advantage of? Those ‘guiding’ and teaching us are restrained by financial burdens, doubts in their own abilities, and commitments to their own restricted lives. So often these ‘restrictions’ are enforced by Government and manipulated by the hierarchy of banks, bureaucrats and technocratic speculators, who drive an agenda that cares little for the individual and even less for those who are unable to contribute to a mentality that insists on a ‘return’ from ever unit of its World Order?
Why are we so self restricting? Could it be that those who have ‘inherited’ the wealth, have enslaved us all, into maintaining their own prosperity?
From birth, there is a ‘contract’ signed (birth cert.) for the Crown to be assured of our worth, and for a value to be set aside for the sovereign legislature to raise credit from, enabling the trading and prosperity (in principal) of the Counties of the UK? Unfortunately, these ‘credits’ are suggested to be misappropriated by unscrupulous corporate practices and a hierarchy of those who feel favour is their entitlement?
Should Society ever be able to find security within its own numbers, the current bias could be swayed to provide a modicum of pleasure, in life and a valuable ‘return’ to every human on the Planet? Without a distinct sharing of lifes ‘benefits’ we are fated to continue, onto the treadmill of those within our historic registers.
We all deserve better, we deserve to be respected and to be ‘valued’ for more than a financial return?
Give yourself time, think about those within your community and create the World that encompasses every human. That way you are assured of a life, as happy as anyone’s?
Lies are gushing from Tory mouths and austerity, rather than being brought to an end, still rips through community after community? The PM has assured the UK that ‘Change’ is around the corner but all we see is £billions being syphoned out of the UK, by Tax avoidance, profit offsetting and overcharging of the NHS.
TORY Technocratic methods indicating their views that the British people are financial assets? A system that cares little for actual people but more for a neoliberal nightmare, that leads many into poverty, debt and homelessness. The Tories have not lost their way, rather they have achieved their wildest dreams, and netted the whole of the Public Purse?twitter.com/peterstefanovi2/status/1055141396334686211
