Government May End Benefit Link to Inflation.

with 10 comments

In the Guardian Today – a new threat.

George Osborne has instructed Treasury officials to draw up proposals to scrap inflation-linked rises for benefits, although he is unlikely to make any changes for next year.

Here.

 

So now we know the context of then anti-benefit claimants campaign.

  2. I presume he will do the same for MP salaries. No? What a surprise.

    Scum, complete scum.

    • The UK government is evil if it does not feel duty-bound in feeding and clothing the poor. It receives many hundreds of billions of pounds in taxpayers and still threatens the insufficient money that goes to the poor.

      • Not only the government: Homeless Charity Centrepoint, Patron Prince William, looks pretty bad as well. They are cutting staff wages – hard. But not, er, well guess whose salaries are not touched…

        “Matt Smith, the union’s regional officer, said: “Despite all the management’s efforts, our members have again voted for strike action. It is very unfair that our members pay will be cut so much that they could fail to keep up their mortgage and rental repayments and join the very people they are dedicated to help.”

        The union claims that 112 of the charity’s 212 staff stand to lose “thousands of pounds” in pay a year, and criticises the charity for ring-fencing top executives’ salaries.

      • The staff at Centrepoint are in exactly the same onerous position as the rest of the workers in this God-forsaken country of ours; their choice is either to lump it or be replaced by slave labour from the “Work Programme”.

  3. Agreed to both comments written by Union Rep and Andrew Coates. What can unemployed people can do to come together in a more professional way to fight unethical benefits cuts? We need unity.

  6. Have I got news for you!!!

    It has just been announced today, Friday 18 November, that the Government IS to cut the annual rise in benefits by ending the link to infaltion.

    Here is the relevant webpage:

    http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/

    Even if the link was retained, the benefit rise was already being reduced because of the switch from the original RPI to the lower CPI – so expect a rise in deaths from malnutrion and hypothermia…

    …Perhaps there will be people dying in the streets just like the ghettoes in the Second World War!
