UNIVERSAL CREDIT: DWP confession is horrific


So the DWP impact statements over the last 10 years have never looked at the 5 week payment delay, how can this be, when they are bound to have an impact on claimants.

If Impact Statements are supposed to cover all impacts, which they are, surely not including all impacts makes the Impact Statements ‘not fit for purpose’.

As a full assessment of Universal Credit has not be conducted, then this benefit should not be being rolled out.

With these facts it should be deemed illegal for the payment and rollout of Universal Credit to be continued, if not, the Advance Payment should be counted as compensation.

Govt Newspeak

A fresh DWP confession about Universal Credit is horrific [YOU THINK]
y7Jf3RPB

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has revealed a horrific fact about Universal Credit. The department said that it has never checked if part of the benefit leads to poverty. But there’s more to this story than meets the eye, as the DWP’s failures actually stretch back nearly a decade.

More DWP chaos?

As CommonSpace reported, campaign group Poverty Alliance made a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the DWP which asked a few questions. Some of these were about the five-week wait Universal Credit claimants have. This is the usual time it takes the DWP to give people their first payment. The Poverty Alliance asked for the DWP to give it:

The DWP’s answer was short. But it was also to the point:

Having searched all our records, I can confirm that we do not hold the…

Voters less likely to back Labour with ‘stop Brexit’ policy, leaked poll suggests | Politics | The Guardian


A leaked poll commissioned by the pro-EU Best for Britain campaign suggests that voters would be less likely to back Labour if the party was committed to stopping Brexit.

According to the poll, passed to the Guardian, almost a third of respondents said they would be less likely to vote Labour, a similar number to those who said it would not make a difference. Twenty-five per cent said it would make them more likely to back Labour, with the rest saying they did not know.

The campaign group, which is pushing for a second EU referendum, commissioned the as yet unreleased snap poll shortly before MPs voted down Theresa May’s Brexit deal. The Populus poll asked 2,000 people whether they would be more or less likely to vote Labour “if they commit to stop Brexit”.

The polling also showed the party would lose around the same number of Labour voters as it would gain from the Conservatives.

Just 9% of Conservative voters would switch to Labour in those circumstances, but 11% of current Labour voters said it would make them less likely to vote for the party.

New poll shows public turning against Trump


Hoping these polls are correct

The Secular Jurist

By Robert A. Vella

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll Aug. 26-29, 2018 indicates the American public has turned sharply against President Trump.  While his poll numbers have never been very good since taking office, it is clear now that the fallout from criminal investigations and prosecutions of his inner circle are having a dramatic effect on public opinion.  Check out these stunning results:

  • 60% disapprove of the President’s job performance while only 36% approve.
  • 47% disapprove of his handling of the economy whereas 45% approve (keep in mind that current economic conditions are generally good, statistically at least).
  • 45% agree that corruption has increased under Trump and just 13% say it has decreased.
  • 63% support the Mueller investigation of Trump while 29% oppose it.
  • 53% believe the President has obstructed justice in the Mueller investigation whereas 35% believe he has not.
  • 67% say the criminal case against former Trump…
