Labour supports Jobseekers bill
I just cannot support what we are doing on this. It seems to me, and I may be wrong, that law-makers are totally divorced from the realities of benefits. to say nothing of the press who are probably even further removed. I have been lucky to only have had to claim dole, but my other half needs disability, but gets none. now, even if the system is perfect, taking money away from poor people sounds a very bad idea, not morally but in terms of how they would pay their bills. I chased every job i could, and that's right, but i'm not convinced these sanctions are the right way to go. and another thing: we are supporting stopping people get compensation from the government for the government's error. How is that right?
