If any Tory government service can be described as a “bottomless money pit”, it is Universal Credit – although that may not seem the case to those who have been thrown onto this abysmal excuse for a benefit.
Universal Credit has cost billions to develop, over many years (as detailed on This Blog – search ‘Universal Credit’ and read for yourself) – and it still doesn’t work.
Lengthy delays in payments mean the fabric of society in trial areas like Great Yarmouth is being torn up.
Now, what do you think your caring, compassionate Conservative government plans to do about it?
I’ll tell you: Nothing.
