DWP left a family so ‘desperate’ the father went on an armed robbery spree

Post by Admin on Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:17 am

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) was ‘clawing back‘ so much money from a family of six that the disabled father committed a string of armed robberies to stop them losing their home. Now, he’s been jailed for five years. He stole a total of around £230.
A “wrangle” with the DWP

As Chronicle Live reported, Andrew Robinson lives with osteoarthritis in his knees.

His educational attainment should be irrelevant. But the court heard he was a former boarding school pupil, “star” rugby player and graduate. Then, his “prospects crumbled” due to his illness. After what Chronicle Live called a “wrangle” with the DWP, it reduced his family’s benefits from £200 a week to just £93.
