This week’s move by George Osborne to cap benefit rises below inflation at 1% is the final deadly touch in a toxic series of measures likely to lead to unprecedented homelessness in the UK.
Osborne’ announcements, bringing misery to millions, seem like a parody of the mad upper class Tory, they have found a hatchet man who gleefully enjoys his job!
The Chancellor’s decision came in the same week that Crisis released a report warning that street homelessness has risen by a shocking 23% in just one year. Every other measure of homelessness has also soared recently with the numbers of homeless families in temporary accommodation up by 44%.
Despite criticism even in the rabid Tory ”press” he refused to apologise for laughing his way through the sadistic ‘kick-him-when-he’s-down’ mini budget…What fun to lock up squatters and make tens of thousand homeless cutting rent benefits. Then off for a jolly hunt with the Yanks in Syria! have to bomb them to oblivion first of course. Regrettable but…. can this really be how British politicians think!!
