Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
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.
