I remember being in Hoxton Jobcentre and hearing someone complain to their advisor that Universal Credit wasn't enough to live on. The advisor's reply was "you're not meant to live on it, it's there to tide you over until you find work." #UniversalCredit
So because I got redundancy pay (barely any and part of that was undertaken holiday) after being made redundant, this month I get £0 in universal credit. I've worked since I was 16, paid tax/NI. This month I will have to decide to either default on my Bills or feed the kids. 1/2
Absolute disgraceful system #UniversalCredit has never been fit for purpose but now maybe with others that HAVE to make the choice between eating or feeding their children will see why the @TheSun @DailyMailUK were wrong with their articles of #Benefits being a choice @RishiSunak https://t.co/fByjrDGzPP
Making me chuckle at how out of touch people are with #UniversalCredit . When there was no pandemic "All these bums buying TV's living a life of luxury". Now they need it? It's not enough, double it. Yeah £300-£400 isn't enough to live on. Welcome to reality. You only care NOW.
So have I got this right, @RishiSunak: No self-employed person will get any help now until January 2021 &, when they do, it’ll be just 20% (down from the previous 80% & 70%)? People have no work. This is going to drive people into Universal Credit & cost more in the long-term.
It’s mad that all these people were suggesting #UniversalCredit was for scroungers that did not want to work covered by the tax payer - what about the ones that couldn’t work who were negatively portrayed in the media mainly the @DailyMirror @TheSun when @ConHome came into power https://t.co/AxmK915DAD
@JenG1210 @blue_choo @Andy_Of_Glasgow Housing benefit does not exist anymore, the government thought it best that they get rid of it and it is included in the full costs of #universalcredit, I was let go from my job at the end of August due to self isolating not naming any names but I have struggled since no help
Time to tear up and Burn #universalcredit for the izal toilet paper it is.
Do you think the extra need for #UniversalCredit could have "possibly" been avoided using Sweden's herd community route,rather than stop...start plan uk used.

Some items to welcome but this late statement will not prevent a large rise in unemployment and the Government have hung some workers out and failed to tackle systemic problems with #UniversalCredit which will now hurt many more people https://t.co/HsUCNcVmFK
Following research on the Impact of #UniversalCredit on women @WRC_NI have recommended that given the current #COVID19 crisis the recovery of benefit debts including Advance Payments should be suspended 👇 Read the research & recommendations here https://t.co/Xlletpk5pd @Kelmba https://t.co/x9kp4uK6sc
