Workers or Shirkers? Ian Hislop's Victorian Benefits
An entertaining, provocative film in which Ian explores the colourful history behind one of the most explosive issues of our times - welfare: who deserves to be helped, and who doesn't. [... ] all hate, no heart. just spreadsheets. at Whitehall, no 11. [...] Benefit Street = victorian freak show/circus of curiosities [...] writing about others, "othering" them. demonising them or putting them on pedestals, making them saints. [...] IDS "a single mother wo aspiration is a product of the system" would correct that, a product of her environment (society) [ie gentrification - poor living w poor door to door. and everyone is looking down on them.].

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 ] &! "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. Will outsource assessment (profiteering) with quotas 2 meet, business as usual. &!
