Universal Credit Scam

The Sunderland Forum obviously deals with all local issues in the chat rooms above. However, this is the General Off Topic Forum. So, this area is for all non-local issues. For example, national news or any other interests etc.

Universal Credit Scam

They should scrap this Universal Credit scam. I know a few people who have suffered because of it. Over this Christmas period there are people going to suffer even more as well. You don't get any money for over a month once you apply for it. Some people fall behind with their rent, I don't know any local people who have lost their home through it but apparently some others in the UK have.
Theresa May and company don't give a damn. I am surprised that Corbyn agrees with it in principle.

No idea about Universal Credit but I have heard too many nasty stories recently about it.
Like the Poll Tax and a few other things, this could be the governments downfall.
Oh aye and then there's the Brexit farce :lol:
The Tories need a kick up the backside.

Its a scam alright, we all know someone who is suffering on Universal Credit. Some are having to use food banks. You wouldn't think it it 2017!

I can't see how they managed to put 6 benefits together into one universal thing because people have different circumstances. What I saw on television over the past few weeks suggest many people are having it tough because of this mess. Without any doubt it is designed to save the government some money that's for sure.

Sack all politicians who agrees with this new benefit. I wonder what the three Sunderland MP's think about all this. They are pretty much quiet about these things.

Sunderland MP's are quiet on everything.
All I know about these three women are that they are in a comfortable highly paid job and they got in by default, that's it!

The food banks are being used by people from all walks of life.
Its a disgrace that the benefits system in the UK is a complete mess.
