BENEFIT SANCTIONS DO NOT WORK
Sanctions to welfare assistance such as Disability, Universal Credit, and Job Seekers Allowance, for example, do not work. These sanctions make vulnerable people worse off.
Very often these sanctions, made by cowardly faceless "decision makers", have no basis in logic or reason. This nonsense needs to stop NOW! Those who have have been sanctioned cannot afford to lose any of their welfare. Bills have to be paid: gas, electricity, phone, broadband and food. These are just the basics and people are being forced to "live" without the basics. It is inhumane and should never have been implemented.
I have been targeted systematically and for no reason. I keep fighting back but I can't do it on my own! I see people being abused in my JCP in Enfield. Anyone would think that the UK has turned fascist the way some so-called "work coaches" talk to their client's. I am able bodied and I am struggling as a result of these consecutive sanctions that have no basis in logic or reason. Imagine how people are coping who are disabled... Imagine people who have severe mental conditions... Imagine people who are seriously ill... Without their welfare assistance (they call it benefits) they can become extremely vulnerable. People can die and they have! This is a war on the vulnerable. We have to converge to fight back!
This self-serving Conservative government has no clue as to what these sanctions are doing to vulnerable people. And when the Tories are being told by other MPs, such as Mhairi Black and Jeremy Corbyn, that these sanctions are causing serious damage - including death in some cases - they do not want to know. The Ken Loach film, I, Daniel Blake, shows how Draconian the system of sanctioning welfare is and they do not want to acknowledge it.
These people must be stopped! Sanctioning welfare assistance must stop NOW!!!!
