The Work Ethic
The government line is delays teach people fiscal responsibility and get them back to work and make work pay. This is ironic coming from the Tory government as :-

1.They do not understand Fiscal responsibility (doubled national debt despite austerity which slows an economy)

2. Since when was it the goverments job to teach people, isn't that the job of education professionals?  I think they meant support low labour costs for maximising corporate profits.

3. Weekly paid work is a week in hand and even that can be a struggle for those with dependents. 
Salaried workers work a month in hand , not too bad if you are young without children and have a family to support you after advanced education, but for those with dependents who have no savings or lines of credit it is unworkable.

4. How do they think even on zero hour contracts, undernourished, stressed, tired and homeless or facing homelessness employees are going to stay employable. 

5. Economists have long sice accepted the Hierarchy of needs (Maslow) that govern peoples ability to think beyond basic survival, without which they do not function and are not able to give anywhere near their best.  This system leaves people below this psychological survival level. 

6. Many on UC are in work and adding debt only makes work pay for those that are lending money. The rules and sanctions especially for those with disabilities are inhuman (see the UN rulings). The cost of UC to tax payers and in health terms to a large number of recipients or waiting recipients is huge. 

The real motives are more to do with politics and supporting Tory Capitalism as opposed to a socially fair Capitalism.

Those behind these schemes, those who negligently assess claiments or withhold advice to claimants which could  improve their situation or enforce sanctions knowing that the claimants could not unreasonably avoid them, should be charged in the courts for negligence in public office (even third parties acting as agents for governent departments). If deaths result they should be charged with manslaughter and if they knew death would result, murder. 

This goverment is acting like a Fascist state manipulating parliment. SS prison guards were still accountable regardless of whose orders they were following, just doing your job to inflict human misery is no excuse.
Well said!
Over here in the U.S. we have the same goober brains( goober is another word for p-nut) destroying jobs, educating our children to be little test takers. Not critical thinkers.
Every time they come out with unemployment figures, I laugh, because they do not take into account all those who are not receiving unemployment benefits. With benefits expired, many give up, & are not recorded in the "official figures." Isn't this called cooking the books?
Here in the south, we are having one of the coldest winters in many years. But, in many areas of this country, you will be arrested if you feed the homeless.
This world is completely upside down.
"Meanwhile the press provides "bread and circus" . . . . and if anyone does raise real issues like the debate on this thread, they roll out "divide and conquer"
Why we were born to do more than just fit into the system, go to school, work, pay bills and die ...
Truth sets you free from this world of fiction
