    Universal Credits just a con

    When Universal Credit starts (when ever that will be) it will all be done Online via computer. So I can see this happening after a couple of months after it starting, the DWP sending letters out to all claiments "Dear Sir, You have been claiming Universal Credit for 2 months now using a computer, so if you are able to use a computer to make your claim then you are able to use your skills to gain employment. So your benefits will stp in six months time as you are capable of employment
    Have A Nice Day : Your @ DWP

    I thought the same about having a car. You could drive a taxi, therefore fit for work.
    Worse still 'we found you have a current valid Drivers Licence'...you are fit for work.

    all these benefit changes over the years introduced by various governments are nothing more than a way to save money and this government all ready admitted that but yet they still use(d) the newspapers to slag us all off, just wish more people could of seen this instead of what the papers printed with their propaganda.

    By using computers more it means they can get rid of more of their own staff. So these people will get a taste of what it is like to be unemployed. Like the PIP, UI seems slower than planned.
