Because you already have over and over, and the public don't believe you any more. Even other political parties such as the Greens have objected to the use of such a blatant lie. During a televised debate, too

There must be a massive amount being paid out to the private IT companies involved, and other outsourced work, too. It's become a bureacratic and costly nightmare while not delivering for those who actually need support

The people claiming welfare are mostly those who have paid in to the treasury, the majority of them are actually in work. I don't think food vouchers are a good idea. Firstly people need to pay other bills - fuel, sometimes on meters - some need medicines if they are ill, clothing, for work or generally, travel costs, council tax and so on. A food voucher would cause serious budgeting problems, and furthermore would take money out of the economy. Lastly, people have paid into the welfare system and should be free to enjoy the same right as others to make their own consumer choices.

There are several studies that show sanctions don't work. But it's actually common sense. If people lack the means to meet their basic survival needs - food, fuel and shelter - and current welfare levels are inadequate - then they will not be able to meet other levels of need, such as looking for and securing employment and other psychosocial needs. Maslow's hierarchy. When people can't meet basic biological needs, their entire motivation is reduced to a struggle for survival. That's it. Sanctions make matters worse by reducing people to desperation. UC has been cut, it means that peope get less - some considerably less - than they did on legacy benefits, including many disabled people who are too ill to work.

Actually the majority of people on universal credit are in work. If you reduce burden on employers, pay will worsen and welfare costs will increase. And welfare is not 'government charity' btw. It is funded by the public FOR the public. Very few people claiming social security have never worked, and many move in and out of work because of the precarity of the Labour market.

Public sector workers are - despite years of Tory cuts to their pay - better paid than average private sector workers, have better job security and have better work conditions on the whole.

How is taking money from people that is intended to meet their basic survival needs through cuts an sanctions "constructive"? Some people are dying as a cnsequence https://kittysjones.wordpress.com/2018/10/13/welf...

It's a shame Esther is such a liar, though, isn't it - https://kittysjones.wordpress.com/2018/07/05/esth...

But the electorate has quickly cottoned on which two are likely to be the most sincere, authentic and honest. Trust me, it isn't McVey or Mordaunt. As for patronising, the entire Conservative party is precisely that. That is how they deal with every single debate. That and the barn yard jeering
