I've just been made unemployed due to mental illness. Thank god I live in NZ and am being given medical treatment and benefits so I don't end up homeless or in prison. I can barely hold onto reality some days, I can't imagine how much worse I'd be on the streets. I am eternally grateful I live in a society that will let me heal and one day be healthy again.
I'm so so sorry to the people in the UK dealing with this right now. You all need to band together and form a community that pulls its strength internally. Start guerilla gardening, start offering your labour in exchange for other peoples labour, start occupying under-utilised land and form an alternative to the crushing form of capitalism that's strangling the poor. Support one another and recognise your strength as a collectiveAutor: Jeremiah Liggins

Now i understand why Europe is letting all the boatloads of foreigners into the country.....too many native Europeans refuse to work!!!! Nobody should have to PUSH you to take your ass to work. Especially if you have children. How could you then think of suicide and leave those poor babies alone? Selfish parents, laziness, and excuses are why these people won't work. As long as benefits exist, these people will continue their lazy lives. Same thing happens here in the USA, except you cannot get benefits if you don't work.....unless you are disabled. Don't you want a better life? I was on benefits for 2 years when i had a baby, but then i went back to school and was determined to get the hell off of the welfare system. That was 24 years ago. I have been working in my field and living on my own with a high paying job every since. The system is not designed for you to spend a lifetime on it. Please stop making excuses, Get up off your asses and pick up your self esteem off the ground and go get your life back. The government could care less if you live or die.Autor: Tiny Meadow

Considering the Queen rules over all of us, Why doesnt BBC PANORAMA have a spine go to the queen and ask her what she thinks? i mean the queen should say something because unless shes blind, id say she just dont give a fuck... and if she dont give a fuck? then why would the goverment?

all of you on here need to come with me and start a fucking riot there doing this because we are standing for it
im 800 pound down a month and i work nearly 60 hours a week sometimes
and im a single parent to 2 sons
i was much better off when i had tax credits i worked christmas day boxing day and new years day and did not see a penny of it because they neglected to tell me they would pay my rent for me so when i got paid i paid my rent and council tax
as you should the bastards took all of my money from me because they got the figure wrong that i had earned
they thought i had come out with £1800 when i only came out
£1169 but by the time i payed my bank charges and then council tax and rent and my other bills there was 200 left for this month
and yet i got up and fought for my life
this goverment are a load of useless heartless wankers and to the scum that vote them back in may god have mercy on your souls cause when death comes knocking on the day of judgement you better get your story straight

There is a part of this not being discussed. The benefits scroungers drained all the resources available for working poor or people who lost their jobs due to economic downturn.
Now they try to use this scheme to say to the voters that they're 'paying benefits owed to them'. All the while, they're trying to hide the fact that benefits scroungers bankrupted the system and now the UK government has nothing for people who paid into the system.Autor: betatalk357

When me and my partner lost our jobs, we were told by the job centre that their computer systems were struggling with universal credit claims and would often just stop working, and they had basically had the whole new system dumped on them with no training on how to actually work it. We were dutifully told that, well, there are food banks so at least you won't starve. Got a new job within a few weeks, thank God, because we could've been homeless and the system was in no way there to help.Autor: Alice Mar

They haven't mentioned the fact that crime is on an upward hill as well. Shoplifting has risen along with other petty crime, there are more parolees being breached and returned to prison, food banks and charities are overworked and it's costing the taxpayers to keep these people in prisons. It would have been a better idea to legalize cannabis, the tax on it alone would pay for welfare in this country. There is no excuse for what this government has done. The working class people with jobs are partly to blame, but what they don't seem to get is that they're underpaid anyway. Their frustration has lead to them complaining about people on benefits...Autor: martin lincoln
The UK needs to do what it can to attract new industry. By doing so, people could earn their own money and reclaim their dignity.

It is another form of eugenics. Something that has been in operation for some time. Not just in this country, but globally. The population is being reduced through various means.

Universal credit is merely playing its part. Where I live white tax payers are reduced to begging while NEW foreign aliens who have contributed FUCK ALL are instantly housed.

Sanctions, Portals, Austerity, Food Banks, Universal Credit, zero hour contracts, Gig economy, minimum wage.Its 1984 with its newspeak all aimed at the poor and disabled. Its a concerted Drive by the Tories to destroy the welfare state and at the very least to make everybody petrified of being out of work, even if that work is poorly paid and with no guarantee of enough hours to live on, yet the banksters get huge bonuses and corporations get special tax benefits and cuts. Homelessness is rapidly rising, rent arrears is at an all time high since universal credit has started to be rolled out, Even what was considered a skilled/semi skilled job like driving is all minimum wage with usually no opportunity of overtime and even if you can get overtime its all flat rate even on a Sunday. They talk about Brexit being likely to affect workers rights, what a joke, they have very little rights now.
I don't consider myself a Union man but since Maggie Thatcher singlehandedly destroyed any power that the Unions had, the ball has swung obscenely far in the employers favour, and workers are kept subjugated by bosses or corporations that dont care about the workers wefare, only their profit margins and i cannot see things improving any time soon, in-fact i can visualize things getting a lot worse as the technology around AI improves and more and more jobs disappear. I could go on but it wont achieve anything. We are properly fucked and only a world wide revolution can save us! but that will never happen because everything is screwed down nice and tight, maybe Brexit will help, but i doubt it as the powers that be will exploit that to its max to our detriment.
At this point in time, i personally am OK, i'm 70 and on a state pension, I live in council property which is paid for by housing benefit and even my council tax is paid for, hopefully they don't mess with that for a while, but even a lifetime of work doesn't count for anything these days so i do expect things to change for the worse, after all i am now what they call a "useless eater".Autor: Ray Tillman

It's a disgrace! Really hard to live on universal credits and a part time job, can't afford to pay all that needs paying, it's a nightmare! When I was on tax credits, I managed and had a bit spare from my job but not on this. Got into debt by tax credits abruptly stopping and making me wait 6 weeks for a payment. If I never had ny job, I'd not have been able to feed my son. I got into debt due to not being able to pay bills in that time and still haven't caught up as they keep changing my universal credit payment saying it's due to my fluctuation in wages but I've had the same weekly wage for 3 years.

1. Many, many people would love to give up work to look after their kids- but they don't, they work to pay for their own responsibilities.
2. Sanctions just do not work like that. There is no way the JC turned that guy away and told him he would be sanctioned next month- because that is not how it works and the presenter stating that without actually checking the facts is so misleading and she totally lost credibility.
3. The money the person received from his employer for holiday pay etc- was still money that was paid to him, so use that to pay your council tax.
4. Really can't understand how you can leave the blame with the government because people are choosing not to pay rent. If I choose not to pay rent, then ofcourse I would be evicted- who am I going to blame then? ME! Because it was me who never paid it!Autor: Claire Lang

People need to take more self responsibility for their own lives, rather than blaming their failings on others.
If you won't get off your backside to get a job, if you spend all your benefit money on alcohol and cigarettes, if you spend your rent benefit on anything other than rent, or if you waste money on takeaways all the time rather than cooking, then YOU are to blame.
Grow up and be responsible for your life instead of shifting the blame on others. You are an Adult. Act like one.
Benefits in Britain are so incredibly generous. Try living in any of the majority of the countries in this world. Benefits to them will seem like winning the lottery. Yet many people in Britain complain they can't live on it. That's only because people want everything for nothing these days rather than earning it.
Food Banks never existed a decade or so ago. The reason why they exist now is not because of Universal Credit, but because people today can't look after themselves. They have become weak. A couple of generations ago, people with little money survived without help even though it was hard. This generation is useless.
The worst thing about Britain now is the self entitled, shifting blame, narcissistic behaviour of many people.

the other sick side of all of this is the therapy industry just when the government is robbing from the poor to bail out the rich, their allies, relations and business partners by enforcing austerity on the majority they also roll out the IAPT service Improving access to psychological therapies so now when the culture crushes you and you arrive to see your target fuelled GP they will spend on average of three minutes with you give you a useless self assessment tick box questionnaire called the PHQ9 and GAD7 label you with so called mental illness and give you a drug marketed as an 'anti depressant' a drug that will likely numb your emotions, sedate you, crush your sex drive, essentially make you less bothered about things previously bothering you and or trigger suicide and the kindly GP will likely refer you for therapy - here you will likely meet a CBT therapist whose therapy philosophy is basically the world is fine its just your own disordered, unhelpful, distorted thinking processes and behaviour that needs 'treatment' to correct so you can just get on with it.

My lunch consisted of chicken Cordon Bleu. I had roasted small potatoes with onions and carrots. I had a salad Nicoise. For dessert, I had cherry cheesecake with a glass of white wine. I watched this and laughed my ass off. All these people that never planned for retirement. All these people being paid but didn't pay their landlord and getting tossed out in the street! This was funny to watch. All the excuses and tears. Poor people like living like that. They'll hold their hand out for anything they can get for free but pull that hand back when you offer them a job! I visit London a few times a year. I love Paris and Rome. Let's not forget Canada! One woman said she's only had one vacation in 6 yrs. Why have that if you can't afford it? They have too many kids and then want the government to cough up more money so they can sit at home and watch tv. So, to see them broke and busted when they never planned for their own retirements is hysterical. People grow old you know!!! I collect rent on a dozen buildings and owe no debt. Every month is like the cash register chinging with free money!! It was fun to see this show about all these poor people. In the ritzy parts of the world you never run across a poor person cause they can't afford to stay where we stay. Let them visit a job center!Autor: thekingtroll2

The point is that the government has manipulated people so that they rely on benefits to survive. When my family were growing up, we had no benefits just child allowance. I went out to work and together with my husband we supported our family. We ended up buying our own property and we provided for ourselves. There is no hope, nowadays, for a lot of people to buy their own property. The same with the pensioners, the government pay such a small state pension that a lot of pensioners have to go, cap in hand, to the government for pension credits. The government want us to rely on them, whilst trying to keep us poor. Like that they have control. I feel so very sorry for those who struggle to survive, especially if you have children or are elderly. The only way forward is to revolt against the system which keeps many poor. We need to take matters in our own hands and not rely on useless politicians who only want to feather their own nest at our expense.Autor: Caprice123

The real problem is the UC was introduced because of all the benefit cheats,the amount of people on benefits with bogus claims had to be sorted out.
I know it’s been hard on some genuine cases who need the money, but don’t keep blaming banks,governments,immigrants.
Blame the CHEATS who took it away the CHEATS who made it a life style the single mothers who have kids just to stay on benefits CHEATS, the bogus walking sticks CHEATS, the bad backs on disability for years while working CHEATS,the Emigrants economic migrants CHEATS, I don’t have to look far where I live to know someone cheating the system as it the case with most decent working people.
Who is screaming the loudest the CHEATS the thought of having to get out and earn a living is giving them heart problems welcome to reality.
The benefits are a safety net not a way of life. As for still paying people who swan off to Spain and still claim is utterly appalling that’s another benefit that should be stopped.
Every action has a consequence don’t pay rent, get evicted,don’t work, no money. Too many kids live in poverty,because of irresponsible parents trying to live on free money: (TAX PAYERS MONEY) who soldier on while thousands of CHEATS laugh in our faces.Autor: Ellie Finn
There are many many problems with our government's priorities at the moment and the way our country is going: the cost of rent is too high, and there are too many people for too few jobs. However, Universal Credit does do its best to help people and is very clear what you have to do in order to get your benefit. Also, it is a much simpler system than before. So we can't really blame the system if people fail to attend appointments or are "bad with money". If certain individuals are vulnerable, they should have a care worker or even just a friend who can make sure they pay their rent or go to their appointments. You only have to go to an appointment once every fortnight. There has to be SOME responsibility on both sides!Autor: Jenny Brock
"to insure that work always paid more". Benefits are there to fund one's bare minimum, but they never do. So if benefits are almost on par with wages, then isn't wages the issue here? Why aren't bosses forced to distribute a fairer share to their destitute workers? Oh, they can't. Perhaps because they are close to the party- this is almost certainly true; however, they can't or they will no longer make profits?! Well, yes, that is also true. Falling rates of profits have insured that despite the economic development (in fact, three-fold increase), wages has stagnates, as well as profits to some extent- or increased only to a fraction of the economic growth. Clearly, the issue here is capitalism itself.Autor: SkidrowFilms
