Account of yesterdays debate

The Bishops stepped in to help prevent over 220,000 children and their parents being made homeless.

How can a political ideology be used as an argument for making children homeless?

Lord Freud argued that it would "change the psychology" of claimants.

Hmmm

And how can a benefit changed supposedly designed to make work pay and encourage people in to work be applied to Carers who may not have the time to work (especially if they are looking after more than one person in receipt of higher rate care DLA- I have 11 year old twins who both get higher care and lower mobility DLA and a 14 year old son who gets middle care and lower mobility). If you can't work capping your benefits just makes you poorer with no hope of escape- you have no choice but live on less than the law at present says you need to live one (the version based on your needs and circumstances rather than an arbitrary cap).

The reality is many will be subject to the cap, including many disabled because you will need to be on higher rate PIP to be uncapped or be in the ESA support group.

You can be very ill (near death) and not fall into that group.

Ah well, just have to go to Wongo.doom and get a payday loan, the social fund is dead.  Just a snip at 4000% interest!
