Keep Your Nerve, Tories! It’s Working!

A disabled man was left baffled by the Universal Credit system after he received just one pence to get him through the month.

Neil Wright, 50, from Plymouth, who suffers with acute arthritis which renders him unable to work, says he cannot understand why his usual payment of £284 has become a deposit of just a penny.

Because we finally got fed up of paying to keep you sitting on your arse with your (obligatory) Staffie…

As well as acute arthritis in his lower back, neck and shoulders he suffers from asthma and is on antidepressants.

Of course he does. He has so much to be depressed about, doesn’t he?

He has been out of work for 12 years but this recent complication and issues he has had with the benefit system he has said that he is considering returning to work.

/applause for the DWP!

He said that he had been living on savings since he got his last UC installment…

Savings! And yet the progressive press insists these people live a precarious existence, never knowing where their next meal is coming from…

Keep it up! No more sympathy for children born to be human shields.

    Don’t know why he didn’t become a priest. lots of interesting things to do, you can sit in a box entertaining oneself listening to perceived sins nearly as bad as your own, wear fancy dresses, no rent to pay free food, no benefits people looking into your circumstances and no worries about Heaven, you would already be in it. Best wishes to Niel .

    Of course the comments from the Mirror are full of how evil the Conservatives are, yet they ignore that Labour created this situation. No one also looked at his bank statement. What’s he buying four or five times a day for £20?

    Yes, arthritis is very painful, but there’s always work he could do. Paying the man nothing is of course a mistake though. If he needs support, he should get it.

    Is he entitled to it? No. It’s my money. Money taken from me with menaces. I’m forced to fund his lifestyle and I want certainty there is nothing he can do to provide for himself. Many disabled people do, to their credit.

      There’s a chap in my building who uses a motorised wheelchair, he’s almost quadriplegic. But he works.

    Re: Depressed

    Another word hijacked by the left and widened to include: upset, bad-day, worried, stressed, tired….

    Depression where one can’t: leave home, use phone, open mail, open curtains and wants to die is trivialised and often now ignored as it’s easier to treat those now classed as “Depressed” when they’re not.

    .
    As for Universal Credit system – a good idea, problem is Gov’t Depts’ sloth and Treasury refusing to allow work to pay.

      Yep, agree entirely. The biggest hinderance to getting people back to work is that the state takes 65% of what they earn.

    “The blueprint, to be published in April, will initially be advisory but could become mandatory if changes to stations are not made.”

    What? Sounds like James Goddard is correct: Soubry et al are Nazis

    DM: “Gov’t changes to rail stations prevent 1,000 suicides in one year”

    DM: “Outrage as suicide by bus/bridge/hgv/cop climbs by 2,000 in one year”
