UC is about disciplining the unemployed

Even if everything had gone according to plan, claimaints would still be facing misery, hunger and eviction. Because this is, quite simply, what the scheme is designed to do: to re-draw the entire welfare benefits system in order to change unemployed people’s behaviour in ways amenable to the Tory party, using the need to ‘simplify’ the system as a smokescreen for attempts to discipline claimants.

 Not only the unemployed but virtually everyone else that needs benefit to survive.
It is a mean of mass control. A rough attempt to tether the burgeoning precariat.
