Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Part of it, is that it's administered by HMRC rather than the DWP and so there's not any assessment of whether the business is actually working for a year. then if the buisness isn't working, HMRC can ask for the tax credits back. so HMRC will be punting a pile of people back to the Benefits system (but that won't appear back on the Unemployment figures till after the election)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
