Abolish Universal Credit

Abolish Universal Credit

To stop the implementation of Universal Credit and to abolish it.

Why is this important?

The new Universal Credit replaces JSA, Income Support, ESA, Housing Benefit, Tax Credits and Working Tax Credits.

Government says Universal Credit will make work pay. This is rubbish.

Universal Credit is about cutting the Social Security bill meaning millions will be worse off.

Once fully implemented Universal Credit :-

Will mean easier sanctioning forcing people to live off nothing.

Housing subsidy will be time limited forcing more to be homeless.

Support for child care drastically cut.

Disability elements cut or abolished altogether.

Thousands of small businesses will be forced out of business.

Some rates are lower than current benefit rates.

For the unemployed UC will eventually become time-limited.

The government has so far wasted hundreds of millions in IT and other failures but even they admit the benefit savings will be in the BILLIONS.

BILLIONS taken from the needy and most vulnerable in society.

How it will be delivered

in person
email
or press


Reasons for signing

  • the struggle is real
  • It is the worst thing I have signed up for, I have a good part time job but clearly not enough to cover my private housing costs!! This is ridiculous because I WORK, why do I need to go job centre to make stupid appointments and for them to upload my documents etc!! I hate this system, I have been waiting for a housing payment for over 3 months to date I have received £0.00!!!Being a single parent!!! how do think any can live like this????!!!!! I will do everything to get this scrapped!!!!
  • Universal credit needs to be scrapped, I'm getting treated like a job seeker when I'm already working and also worse off as now even with wages, we struggle to get enough food every month
