UC needs to change
Last night I was watching a programme on channel four about the universal credit and I was really intrigued on how the Goverment has made such a error on rolling out the universal credit with people having not enough to buy basic foods and one couple had to days and weeks on very little food because of the delayed payments and I just feel that their need to be a better way so that those who are ill disabled or mental health conditions donít get sicker as result an those who declared fit also donít in a bad state and developing health issues as result of uc.

It may me realise that there needs to be a better solution

Unite have been doing a lot of campaigning on this issue. If you are wanting to be proactive then email your stories to them.

A blogger/author/MH activist had a 42 day hunger strike to raise awareness of how long people have to wait for their UC to start. (Chris Young - walk a mile in my shoes).

And, was it Skint: Friends Without Benefits that you watched? I also watched that and was shocked and scared. It's on again tonight I think.
