Is UK Government breaking international law over welfare policies?


I am not surprised that the UK Prime Minister’s office did not offer comment as this Government is not recognising the findings already published by the UN regarding UK welfare reforms. As is stated in 2016 the UN findings showed that the UK welfare reforms had led to “grave and systemic violations” of disabled people’s rights, which the UK Government disputed.

How can it be that the UK, which is greatly involved in the UN, being they are one of the prime countries in the UN Security council is failing to take on board findings from the UN regarding the results of the already created UK welfare reforms are having on the lives of people with disabilities within the UK.

What is the point in having the UN if one of their major members is ignoring comments made by the UN.

Should, in fact, the UK be allowed to remain on the UN Security council.
