Theresa May urged to halt Universal Credit rollout - BBC News
Conservative MP Stephen McPartland said his concern with Universal Credit was that for "every pound these people earn, extra, the government's taking 63p back off them".
"To me that is an effective tax rate of 63%, which is ridiculous. So the lowest paid are effectively having to pay some of the highest taxes," he told BBC Radio 4's the World at One. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-41278248

Booming gig economy costs £4bn in lost tax and benefit payouts, says TUC | Business | The Guardian
Study shows low-paid self-employment and zero-hours contracts costing exchequer £75m a week – a quarter of England’s weekly social care budget [...] Their relatively low earnings also make them more likely to need to rely on in-work benefits such as tax credits and housing benefit, the TUC said. [...] “The huge rise in insecure work isn’t just bad for workers. It’s punching a massive hole in the public finances too,” said TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady.

DWP faces civil service rebellion over quizzing women on rape clause | News | The National
FRESH calls have been made to scrap the controversial “rape clause” after a civil servants’ union raised grave concerns over staff being made to interrogate victims seeking child benefit for a third child.

Under Westminster plans, child benefit will only be payable to the first two children in a family, unless subsequent babies are the product of rape.

The onus will be on mothers to prove their children were conceived during a sex attack, but the method of doing this has not yet been set out.

The Department for Work and pensions has pledged to develop “appropriate” protections for women and ensure “support is compassionate and effective”.

Tory tax and benefit plans ‘widen generation divide’ | Politics | The Guardian
New analysis of how money will shift from young to old over the next four years has been produced by the foundation as it announces a new intergenerational commission aimed at creating a fairer deal for voters aged under 25. The analysis, which breaks down the impact of tax and welfare changes planned for this parliament by age, shows that people in their 30s will experience the biggest losses of any age group, losing an average of £220 a year by 2020.

In contrast, people in their 60s are set to be the largest beneficiaries, gaining an average of £170 a year. The research also shows that 45 is the age at which people, on average, move from losing to gaining from forthcoming tax and benefit polices in this parliament.

Government Faces Labour Questions Over Universal Credit Risks
documents obtained under freedom of information showed a risk of fraudulent activity and cyberattacks. [...] It was finally disclosed this month by the department after a freedom of information request by John Slater, a former IT project manager, and Tony Collins, an investigative journalist, following a four-year legal battle. [...] The documents, which date from 2012, contain a line in which parts of the project are described as “pushing above the programme funding envelope”. They also raise concerns that the programme lacks a “robust framework of assurances”, which means “rework” may be needed if elements of the project are “not fit for purpose”. Fears over staffing are described, with concerns over “skilled staff resources not in the right place at the right time”. [...] “shocking” to see “essential considerations” like fraud and cyber security not being “at the core of [UC]” from the start.

Meet the teachers, charity workers, NHS staff and scientists Theresa May wants to kick out of Britain | Home News | News | The Independent
In April, new immigration laws will see tens of thousands of skilled workers deported from the UK [...] The Government has responded to a petition urging it to scrap a new £35,000 pay threshold on non-EU workers, calling it a “modest” contribution to cut net migration to Britain. Yet the Government’s own analysis estimates the measure will cost up to £575 million to the taxpayer in the first year alone, and it has sparked a public outcry from the tens of thousands of people set to be affected. [...] employers have had since April 2011 to prepare. //&! From stop35k.org/#!blank/c1enr - "Tier 2 General Skilled Workers who do not make £35,000 salary or who have been in the UK for 6 years, will need to leave or be deported. The Home Office estimates this will cost taxpayers between £181million and £575million" [...] Other proposed legislation is to prevent people from EEA to work here if they do not earn 30k/y or more.

George Osborne warns of further spending cuts in Budget - BBC News
[ LOL! ] But recent figures showing the UK economy was smaller than expected meant savings must be found in his Budget statement on 17 March, he said. [...] Mr Osborne said he would rather look for extra cuts now than risk breaking his own manifesto commitment to achieve a surplus in the budget by the end of this Parliament. The chancellor did not completely rule out raising taxes in the event of a further slowdown in growth, but said that now was not the time for "significant" tax hikes. [...] I'm absolutely clear we've got to root our country in the principle that we live within our means and that we have economic security." [...] "whole purpose of our economic plan was to have a budget surplus. [...] we got big challenges at home to make the economy more productive even as more people get work. [ because having part of your budget in the property bubble is so productive ] [...] I will do what is required to keep our country safe and secure." [ NOT CHANGING PLANS ie U-TURN ]

Affordable housing: David Cameron’s starter homes plan is not the solution | Society | The Guardian
Affordable housing: David Cameron’s starter homes plan is not the solution A proposal to create ‘starter homes’ selling for 20% below market rate may be good news for developers, but is unlikely to make them build more houses. [...] Even if the starter homes plan does lead to an uptick in building, these are homes that will be on the market to buy, not for rent. They will give those who might have used the existing help to buy scheme an alternative choice, but they don’t offer an affordable alternative to homeownership, or an option for the priced-out. Mortgage rates mean that homes are relatively cheap to own, but expensive to buy, and raising a deposit for a home that can cost up to £250,000 outside London and £450,000 in London is no mean feat. To take a 95% mortgage on a £200,000 property you are looking at £10,000, plus stamp duty and other charges. Try saving that up when your rent is rising each year. //&! bit.ly/1Tcvlg6 - Cameron has to buy off his MP's constituency on policy

Amid market turmoil and confusion, there are four key economic trends shaping society
The UK economy currently gets nowhere near its target of 2%. Inflation would decrease the value of current debts, making them less of a burden. In a world without much inflation, it is hard to get wages up. The worse case scenario is that debt costs increase, as prices and wages stagnate. [ ignoring debt and income growth - stagnation at their peril - youtu.be/KIaXVntqlUE - gov is no household budget, Steve Keen + Richard Koo ] [...] And in this age of austerity, these factors will work against governments seeking to reduce the welfare bill. Recent data shows that, in UK cities, growing numbers of low paid jobs have led to rising claims for welfare such as housing benefits, defeating the government’s aims to reduce spending.

Duncan Smith has 'complete faith' in PM's EU negotiations - BBC News
Iain Duncan Smith has said he has "complete faith" in David Cameron's ability to secure welfare reforms as part of the UK's EU renegotiations. Mr Cameron has said there will not be a deal this year amid reports of growing opposition to proposals to restrict EU migrants' access to in-work benefits. The work and pensions secretary said he remained "upbeat" since all EU nations wanted to curb "benefit tourism". He said the PM wanted a deal he "could sell to the British people". [...] Mr Duncan Smith claimed there was support in Germany and other EU nations for limiting EU migrants' access to benefits.

Trussell Trust Scots food bank referrals top 60,000 - BBC News
Delays in receiving benefits was the most common reason cited for financial hardship. About 28% of recipients said this was the reason they were in difficulty, the same proportion as last year. The percentage of referrals due to benefit changes dropped from 18% to 16%. The proportion of those referred due to low income increased from 18% to 21%. The trust's Scotland network manager Ewan Gurr said he was worried low income would become a bigger problem in the coming months. He said: "Difficulties related to welfare benefits are still driving the majority of people to our Scottish food banks but now one in five of those referred is on a low income. "Among that number is a growing body of people in low paid employment who are simply unable to make the pay cheque stretch far enough when crisis hits.

Food banks have become a lifeline for many, but where is the way out? | Patrick Butler | Society | The Guardian
Back in September 2012, however, when Bestwood and Bulwell food bank opened, Webster did not expect to be hugely busy, confidently believing it could be “run out of a cupboard”. What happened next was terrifying: the initial trickle of referrals turned into a flood, triggered by what Webster calls “downright poverty”. After a year, volunteers were “on their knees” (though they are on their feet again now, he adds), battered not only by the sheer weight of demand, but by the shocking specificity of the deprivation and injustice they encountered: the food bank client who was sanctioned by the jobcentre (had her benefits stopped) for not attending a job search interview even though she told them she was in hospital having chemotherapy; a woman client who asked if the food bank gave out tampons; she had no money and had been forced to use newspaper instead. It troubles him that so much of their work is, on the face of it, due to avoidable failures in state provision, ...

Iain Duncan Smith calls people without a disability "normal"
The art of cruelty: why the Conservative attack on disabled people harms us all. No sick person responds to their diagnosis by thinking, “I can scam taxpayers for £73 a week!” [...] Not only is in-work poverty a larger drain on the benefits system than the unemployed, but most of the things that help disabled people get back to work have been cut. [...] They got away with this by launching an all-out propaganda assault that portrays disabled and workless people as “scroungers”, “sponging” off the state, when presumably they should be grateful not to be left on a hillside to die as would have been done in the good old days. [...] This is Tory Britain. [...] The welfare state is being dismantled and rebuilt as a machine to manage and discipline the workforce into accepting precarious labour, low pay and no social safety net. [...] this way the Tories can persuade the most vulnerable in society to accept their fate and the rest of us to believe that they deserve it. [...] moral hazard

Migration rules need re-think - NHS boss - BBC News
A re-think of immigration rules which protect ballet dancers but not vital foreign nurses need re-thinking, the head of the NHS in England says. NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens made the comments over a new pay threshold for non-European workers. It means means migrants will have to leave the UK after six years if they are not earning at least £35,000. Exemptions are in place for some, including ballet dancers, but not nurses. The Royal College of Nursing has warned the rules would "cause chaos" for the NHS and waste money spent on recruitment. The union has said that by 2017 more than 3,300 NHS nurses could be affected, and by the end of the decade the numbers could be double that.

The disabled and jobless need help, not harassment | Barbara Ellen | Comment is free | The Guardian
No one wants to stop disabled people working, to patronise or stereotype them, or condemn them to a life in the shadows. However, helping disabled people back into employment should be just about that – helping them. Instead, we’re left with a flimsy cover for herding and bullying highly vulnerable people out of the benefits system. //&! bit.ly/1MncLfD - Report on death of Michael O’Sullivan blames work capability assessment and warns of risk of more such deaths unless DWP takes action [...] this is believed to be the first time the work capability assessment (WCA) process has been blamed directly for a death. [...] In its 16-page response to the coroner’s report, the DWP admitted it had got it wrong. It said its policy to request further evidence when a claimant mentions suicide on claim forms was “regrettably not followed in this case”. //&! bit.ly/1Mfcmfd //&! bit.ly/1V6O0vz

If David Cameron really wants to help the poor, why hasn't he fired Iain Duncan Smith? - Comment - Voices - The Independent
In it Together, says that George Osborne’s view is that Duncan Smith is “just not clever enough”. But I did expect him to be moved, not primarily because he doesn’t measure up to the job, but because it would allow Cameron to ditch universal credit, the grand simplifying reform of the benefits system that everyone knows is never going to happen. So far, the best thing to be said about universal credit is that it doesn’t affect many people, as it is still being “rolled out” in “pilot schemes”. [...] Cameron knows perfectly well that it will never be implemented as intended; the Treasury knows it; No 10’s own civil servants gave up on it long ago, hence the joke about it being known as “universal cred” because the IT isn’t working. [ should take a page out of Obama's book (healthcare.gov) and ask somebody to help, who knows IT, and save it vs never able to fully deliver on it + additional cost. Comes back Cameron being a PR man and Career Politician. Never admitting to be wrong. ]

Iain Duncan Smith sets his sights on mentally ill benefit claimants | News | The National
TOO many people with __“common” mental health problems__ are reliant on the state, [DWP] Iain Duncan Smith claimed yesterday. The Minister was speaking ahead of a major shake-up of the ESA benefit. He claimed the system was too “binary” and argued people with mental health problems would benefit from working. The SNP said his shake-up would force more people into hardship. In the speech, which was behind closed doors, IDS made no policy announcements, rather policy intentions. [...] [ putting it into the light of abuse of the 'system' >> ] Two absolutes equating to one perverse incentive[.] “This needs to change – things are rarely that simplistic. [ he already cut ESA warg ] &! youtu.be/BYAf5DuWaC0 "how much work can u do till u get treatment" - so much abt speech not being policy. never does he mention the stretched NHS&GP system especially mental health services.

Row breaks out over benefit cuts 'suicide watch' claims - BBC News
The SNP and Labour have hit out over claims that frontline benefits staff are getting guidance on how to deal with claimants threatening suicide. The Sunday Herald reported that the advice has been given to Scottish Department for Work and Pensions staff. The SNP said it highlighted the "devastating impact" of benefit cuts and sanctions, while Labour said cuts were hitting the vulnerable. The DWP said staff can refer claimants for support and this was "nothing new". The guidelines for call centre staff are designed to help staff deal with unsuccessful applicants for Universal Credit who are threatening to self-harm or take their own life, the newspaper reported. [...] "That the UK government are issuing suicide guidance to their frontline staff is an acknowledgement by them of the devastating impact of their social security cuts on people's lives - it's not new guidance they need, it's a new approach." [...] [We are all in this together.] [But, sense of everyone for him/herself. ]

George Kerevan: A merciless attack on the poor ... to the sound of cheers | Comment | The National
What about the cut to Corporation Tax, to 18 per cent? UK firms currently sit on £550bn in cash reserves which they have little inclination to spend, other than to buy back their shares. Cutting their taxes will only swell this useless cash mountain, not lead to more investment. Indeed, the independent Office for Budget Responsibility, in papers published with the Budget, forecasts Britain’s current account deficit on trade will worsen in the next five years – a sure sign of failing productivity and competitiveness. The Tories cheered George Osborne to the rafters yesterday but just wait until the economic roof falls in when American interest rates rise and Britain’s bubble economy has to face the real world.

No Representation; personal & corporate tax avoidance/evasion (criminal behaviour) & non-dom, as well as progressive tax code (just lowered last term to 45% for 150k.)
