Re: Universal Credit A.K.A. Lets starve the poor
Whatever the faults of the current Labour leadership, one thing I think we can be fairly confident of is that, if they win the next general election, this vile system will be changed. And taxes will go up to pay for it. The way the economy works will be addressed.
Whether in the long-term that leads to other problems (loss of investment, aggressive tax avoidance etc) is open to debate. And I suspect 'big and not so big' business won't welcome that change, but there will be one.
But the notion that the vulnerable will remain ignored is just plain wrong....
The Tories had their chance to do this correctly. I was always of the left but I am not so blinkered as to not give a government a chance to prove themselves. I kind of liked Cameron's idea of a "big society", turns out it wasn't workable as it's not easy to just offer help to councils, they don't like it and he really only wanted to cut services and plug gaps with well meaning volunteers. These fuckers have taken us back decades. The have invested nothing, sold off everything and punished the weak. All round shitheads and proof of anyone needed it that Tories are cunts.
