Can I just make a prediction?
On looking into my crystal ball, I foresee that the utterly incompetent IDS's Universal Credit (and the caps, and benefits reforms generally) will rapidly dissolve into the biggest cluster-**** that this country has ever seen. And theres been a good few.
It already appears to have become an utter shambles that, far from producing the savings predicted, will end up costing billions. This is what happens when you let ideology, rather than any actual evidence, dictate policy. IDS has been repeatedly exposed as peddling shameless disinformation to justify further cuts. The problem seems to be that he appears to actually believe the figures he's pulling out of the air
I suspect a lot of the shouty, finger-pointy stuff at benefits 'scum', sorry … 'claimants, is largely a cover to distract from this almighty **** up!
The whole thing is going to end up as a completely unworkable farce, which will end up costing vast sums of money, while making the lives of millions of people imeasurably more miserable
