    And this entire shambles is to cut welfare costs. 40million quid. Detoured from the vulnerable and put into a French company’s bank account.
    Great bookkeeping Georgie. French firm halls in 40m and leaves it in their French bank-or swiss account……but, leave the money with the people you are effectively stealing it from and it goes back into local business, keeps other people in work. Taxes get paid. Treasury benefits.
    This has damn all to do with getting the money to those who deserve it, and EVERYTHING to do with “costcutting” or, in other words, cutting your nose to spite your face. The govts own figures showed that, between the total for Incapacity Benefit AND Disability Living Allowance, the total fraud wad LESS THAN 1%. Yet they say they will cut 20% off of DLA. If there is, their own figures, .4% fraud, then that means 19.6% will lose money they desperately need to help them live.
    Between 1996-7 and 2009-10, labour borrowing was £319bn. Since coalition took over and their deficit cutting began, they have borrowed £465bn. And they seem happy enough to see vulnerable people, many who have worked, and contributed tax and national insurance for years, end up destitute and starving. This coalition’s growth industry seems to be foodbanks.

    Common Sense Nationwide would Help to get Rid of this Monstrosity of a Regime

    It is the Politicians and the ” Royal ” Family who are the Scroungers

    Billions Wasted upon War in Afghanistan Nuclear Weapons and the EU Mess
    can then be Spent more Better like Helping the Poor and Vulnerable

    I do Wish People would Stop Drifting Around Brainwashed in a Trance and Wake Up

    Forget the Halloween and Christmas Circuses Decent Government is More Important

    So much bollocks in the Daily Record. The only reason they are running these stories is to pacify the SNP interests, who want to claim that there will be no assessments in an independent Scotland.

    Basically they don’t care about disabled people, they just want to score political points. This is sick!
