Dear readers its Thursday and most of us are on lockdown.
I did take a walk down to Ashton but I was unable to hand much out food wise because I have no spare cash, none at all but I did the best that I could do given the circumstances.
I realise that most of you are probably stressed and/ or worried about catching Covid 19 and are trying to keep away from people as much as possible, but its nearly impossible because we can’t afford to do one big shop for the week etc because universal credit prevents this.
Universal Credit is being touted at the moment as being the best thing ever, that it’ll help all self employed and previously employed people and that it will be of great benefit to them.
Claim universal credit and you’ll be ok!! But it’ll take at least five weeks to process and if you take a loan from us you have to pay it back.
The truth is that as of yesterday half a million people were attempting to apply for universal credit and many of them didn’t have the correct ID. They were then told to phone up the DWP using the universal credit hotline to make an appointment.
The truth is that the system couldn’t cope, too many people were calling and many have given up because they cant get through to speak to a DWP advisor who could hep them to proceed with their claim.
Universal credit is responsible for thousands of children and their parents being hungry and going without meals, adequate clothing.
It’s also responsible for many people becoming homeless. Many disabled people have given up with the system because its so stressful.
We must never, ever forget this cruelty bestowed to us by a cruel and uncaring government.
Another alternative was given to disabled people via Martin Lewis. He advised disabled people to apply for ESA not realising that its notoriously difficult to claim and most people are rejected upon applying so they have to appeal and then take it to a tribunal.
Thousands of people will now see and hopefully understand how complicated and heartless the DWP regime is.
Self employed people have been informed that they won’t get any help until the end of May. This will be far too late for most people.
Many will be close to loosing their homes.
Many will be hungry and the government doesn’t care one bit.
You see myself and other campaigners have been protesting and campaigning against this cruel, heartless system since its conception.
Many of us have been called scroungers, lazy, work shy and we must all get a job.
I suspect that some of these people will now be trying to struggle through the system as I type this, maybe they’ll realise how cruel the system is now.
Myself and other campaigners have lost count of how many people have died as a result of this sadistic, inhumane system. We’ve cried countless tears and mourned many losses.
We also worry about our children and young people because their struggle will be even harder than ours.
I’ve recorded so many awful situations in this blog, most of them heartbreaking, and now on top of this will be the deaths of people from Covid 19 struggling to cope at home after being told that they’re not a priority for help.
I really don’t recognise this country anymore, it used to be much better than this even during the hard times but I thank everyone thats campaigning for a better future.
Please can I ask you to take all of the Covid 19 Coronavirus information seriously. I know that it’s definitely not easy.
One day I hope that things will be better for us all.
Keep strong and I will continue to update my blog on a regular basis.
