We are featured in this weeks copy of The Big Issue North.

The author Gary is a lovely chap. He shadowed me at our weekly demo and I think that he was shocked of the gravity of reality of the in work conditionality element of Universal Credit. 

People often forget about this, perhaps because they think that it won’t affect them. But it very well could do and it’s best to research and to be prepared for the eventuality of in work conditionality. 

Anyway, have a read, it’s a fantastic article and very well written.

Thanks very much Gary.

  1. A couple of months ago I called in to my local Jobcentre looking for some part-time work – I’m a retired electronics engineer. Asked where the “Jobs Board” was and was informed that they didn’t have such displays anymore and then was brusquely shown the door as they can’t assist anyone who is drawing the State pension. Goes to prove that the Jobcentres only exist to sanction and otherwise deter those who need to make a claim.

  2. Reblogged this on Mark Catlin's Blog and commented:
    There’s absolutely no compassion in these edicts from Westminster, the welfare state needs bolstering for the future not destroying. Technological advances mean the required workforce will get smaller each few years, the population is growing exponentially, so before long there will be more people and less and less work available, without a robust benefits system to cope with this, there will be masses of homeless people starving on the street. IMHO we’re heading to a dystopian future where the wealthy and their loyal lackeys all live in gated, secure communities while the rest live outside in squalour hoping for a few hours work to enable them to feed themselves and/or their families…….what a thought eh?
