First off, thanks as always *incorrigible* for the supercut. Thanks to the DWP I can't afford much data, this makes getting the relevant news easier for me. If I ever make it off disability, I'll cut you a cheque for all the videos I didnt donate to.

+Anon Well let the other nations try it out first, i'll assume it's the nordic countries.. Our innovation in technology has declined b not our consumption.. Technology is shared around the world at a price and if the price is to high the market gets flooded with generic versions

Forget universal credit... Start thinking universal basic income. The most technologically advanced nations in the world are having serious discussions about universal basic income and trying to work out what all the people will do when half the worlds population has not paid work because the jobs no longer are carried out by humans. The UK has a similar problem because of a decline in technological growth.

The word "failure" is the biggest lie about this sordid saga. UC is intended to smash the poor. It does so. It is a massive success.

The European benefit check has been delayed for too long... The UK is still in a good shape compared to others tho, it could have been much worse.

I don't know if anyone would be able to help me understand something or not, but if you could I would be very appreciative for it. Just real quickly I live in the U.S. so please excuse my ignorance on these matters. I keep hearing people say about this Universal Credit that it was meant to "make work pay" & to "streamline the benefits system". Now, I can understand the streamline the benefits system part, I'm not sure whether or not the people saying it are sincere in saying that or if it really needed to be streamlined, but I understand what it means. Now, on the "making work pay" part based upon the things said in this video & many previous videos where Universal Credit is discussed I take it that the previous benefits system were set up in such a way that if people were to get a job while on benefits their benefits would be significantly reduced and/or cut off. Even in situations where the job really didn't pay well enough to cover the loss in benefits. Therefore, people would pass on jobs that were like this in order to keep the benefits, not because they didn't want to work but because the work did not allow them to cover their living expenses. Is this understanding correct? Assuming for the moment that is the correct understanding of the issue with the previous benefits system my main question is why could they not just tweak the prior benefits system in order to deal with that issue? Why did it require a complete overhaul?

The system was designed to make work pay in the sense of working for your money so that a job is paying you rather than claiming benefits so that the state pays. People misunderstood what the government was really saying when they said that Universal Credit would "make work pay". It was a clever play on words. The government doesn't care if the work you get doesn't pay you enough to live on as long as the government is not paying you through benefits. The government assumes everyone is workshy and focused on what they called "a lot of pockets of worklessness". They were referring to those who are too lazy to work and claiming benefits fraudulently. Unfortunately genuine claimants who need the help are suffering as a result.

+Carch P. Glauca Let me make you understand something about this demonic 'benefit'...IT KILLS! It's as simple as that. It causes mass starvation, mass homelessness, extreme poverty AND IT WAS DEVISED TO KILL THOSE THE TORIES DO NOT DEEM FIT TO LIVE!!!!

+Carch P. Glauca It' s like Hartz4 in germany. They (the SPD, with a "new labour" ideology under Gerhard Schröder and the Green Party) promised a massive saving and better care at once. In theory it works but in practice in about every country I've seen such "simplifications" it's just a hidden cut of social care. Either by cutting the amount of money people get or the number of people who're eligible to claim the benefits. The irony is, the conservatives would never have been able to do this. The SPD would've ripped them appart. But we were unaware about our labour party, infected from within. Effectivley backstabbing their own voters.

+Carch P. Glauca Yeah, like I said I can totally understand that aspect of it, not that I necessarily agree with it as I can't remember where I heard this but I do remember hearing someone float the idea that they wanted to roll it all into one benefit is because it would then be easier to get voters behind the idea of cuts to it. The idea underlying that thought of course is that when the benefit is separated into the various parts like housing, child care, food assistance, etc... by proposing cuts it is essentially saying to remove that item from someone's life or reduce it [i.e. reducing housing benefits will mean more homeless people, reducing food assistance will mean people going hungry, reducing child care could lead to people losing their job or kids left unsupervised, etc...] whereas having it all under 1 benefit with such a nebulous, general name will make it easier to push cuts through because they could do it in a way that disassociates that 1-to-1 relationship between the cuts & what they do to people. Either way though like I said I can comprehend the concept behind that rationale for doing it... but as they've managed to totally f-ck it up [beyond just the billions in cuts,] in how they implement it everyone seems to be focusing on the "making work pay" aspect of why they did it & that's the part I have trouble understanding. It just seems to me that they could have simply adjusted the previous benefits to not do whatever they were doing to "not make work pay". Also, one thing I didn't ask, but I should have originally. This whole 5-week or however long wait time that there is with Universal Credit did that exist with the previous benefits? Having any sort of wait time beyond just when the next cycle of payments is made seems rather stupid & pernicious... I mean someone who lost their job or whatever could in fact possibly find another job in that amount of time & if they don't it is going to be rather difficult for them.

When you have disabled people being declared fit for work and then dying a couple of days later we should question what system is in place to support The needy

The KEY word in Personal Independence Payment, is *INDEPENDENT* to help disabled people feel more inclusive and to give them their independence. Why then when mentally and/or physically disabled people who claim PIP TRY to be INDEPENDENT...does the DWP DEEM THEM FIT ENOUGH TO WORK?!!! Whoever thinks up these titles of Universal Credit [ which should really be called 'UNIVERSAL DEBIT AND DEATH], and then PIP, they are contradictions in terms.

So many years into the future, the people then will look back at this time and say, WHY DID PEOPLE ALLOW INNOCENT VULNERABLE BRITISH PEOPLE TO DIE AND BE LEFT DESTITUTE BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT?! WHY DID THEY ALLOW POLITICIANS WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE THE CARE OF THE PEOPLE THEY REPRESENT, FAIL IN THAT DUTY?! AND WHY DID PEOPLE ALLOW POLITICIANS TO GET AWAY WITH DEVISING SUCH AN HORRIFIC POLICY?! YES, QUESTIONS WILL BE ASKED, TWENTY, THIRTY YEARS INTO THE FUTURE! I WONDER IF, BY THEN, THOSE WHO DEVISED SUCH POLICES WOULD HAVE BEEN SENTENCED FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY?!
