One person trying to claim universal credit was told to have someone else take a photo of them holding a street sign with their right hand
This is extremely humiliating and very degrading and shows how far from reality the DWP especially the person or persons who have made up these rules.
What it will do is stop genuine claimants claiming and not stop any fraudsters.
This is because fraudsters are great in finding ways round any requirements and restrictions as they are very resourceful, which genuine claimants are not.
The DWP and the Government need to live in the real world and stop punishing people who are in very genuine and deep distress.

The figures speak for themselves, so no one should be in any doubt about the intentions of this Tory and previous Tory Governments in their will to decimate the population of disabled people.
Yesterday 27 January 2021 was Holocaust Memorial Day and the Tories are as guilty as the Nazis, the Serbs and others in the massacre of sections of their community by numerous methods
insufficient funding of Social Care
insufficient funding of Community Care
Sanctions on benefit claimants
COVID-19 scandals in Care Homes
insufficient vaccine priority for persons with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism
and many others
Boris has stated he and his Government have done the best they can during COVID-19, well if that is their best I would not wish to see their worst
Then to ‘Cap It’ he stated the immortal phrase ‘Lessons would be Learnt’, well from my 71 years of experience of life I have never seen that lessons have been learnt, is this due to, not wishing to learn, no funding to learn, inability to learn or others I can’t really say, although I assume funding will play a big part, but in effect it could be a mixture of them all.
So, unfortunately I can’t see anyway learning can be improved, unless all of the above are reversed and them some.

Labour’s new shadow work and pensions secretary Jonathan Reynolds is showing that incompetents are not solely within the Conservative Party or is he a Tory plant within Labour.
Jonathan Reynolds and the Labour Party need to get their act together, otherwise we will have Tory Governments until infinity and Labour will be finished forever.
It is with dismay that the DWP appear to be blaming software for problems in not updating ‘Legacy’ benefits, for surely it is their responsibility to ensure software is uptodate.
If it was with regards to their own salaries, they would not stand for it, so why should people on Legacy Benefits.
‘Own the problems’ and do not make excuses.
