Tories quibble while opposition MPs shred Universal Credit

Post by Admin on Wed Oct 25, 2017 7:08 am

The minority Conservative government ran away from another chance to explain how it will accommodate Parliament’s decision to pause the roll-out of Universal Credit, with Work and Pensions Secretary David Gauke nowhere to be seen during the urgent debate on Tuesday (October 24).

Instead, a succession of other Tories got on their hind legs to spout the usual nonsense – that Universal Credit makes work pay (it doesn’t), that the six-week (at the very least) delay before the first payment emulates the world of work in which payment is in arrears (it doesn’t – most people who are likely to receive Universal Credit would be paid weekly)
