This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government

Petition Abolish Universal Credit

More details

The new Universal Credit replaces JSA, Income Support, ESA, Housing Benefit, Tax Credits and Working Tax Credits.

Government says Universal Credit will make work pay. This is rubbish.

Universal Credit is about cutting the Social Security bill meaning millions will be worse off.

Once fully implemented Universal Credit :-

Will mean easier sanctioning forcing people to live off nothing.

Housing subsidy will be time limited forcing more to be homeless.

Support for child care drastically cut.

Disability elements cut or abolished altogether.

Thousands of small businesses will be forced out of business.

Some rates are lower than current benefit rates.

For the unemployed UC will eventually become time-limited.

The government has so far wasted hundreds of millions in IT and other failures but even they admit the benefit savings will be in the BILLIONS.

BILLIONS taken from the needy and most vulnerable in society.
