Re­verse fer­ret re­quired on this pol­icy

i Newspaper - - COMMENT -

The Tories must scrap the roll-out of uni­ver­sal credit af­ter Cab­i­net min­is­ter Es­ther McVey was forced to ad­mit it will short­change fam­i­lies.

Mak­ing the just-about­manag­ing no longer able to man­age is an as­sault by a party adopt­ing aus­ter­ity as a po­lit­i­cal ide­ol­ogy rather than a ne­ces­sity. Theresa May has to take time out from Brexit and or­der Philip Ham­mond to use the Bud­get to re­place it with a fair sys­tem which helps, not harms peo­ple.

John Ma­jor was right to echo Gor­don Brown’s warn­ing that this at­tack risks re­peat­ing the bit­ter poll tax cri­sis.

The Tories will be seen as vin­dic­tive if they press ahead with their great ben­e­fits rob­bery. (Ed­i­to­rial)
