POLITICS: System causes such despair

editorial image

It seems to me that every time Mrs May speaks she establishes new levels of crassness; her latest effort being “most people agree that universal credit is a good system because it ensures that work always pays”.

In other words, it causes such despair in the people it is aimed at that they will try even harder to find work, so that’s alright then.

The sooner this failed object is removed, the better. And I’m not just referring to Universal Credit.
