Government tightens the thumb screws on the poorest..
As of the 1st April 2013 the Con Dem
government will be no longer providing any social funding, these
include, crisis loans and budgeting loans. Many people rely on these
loans when faced with an emergency or disaster. This s a kick in the
teeth for people who are already struggling under the coalitions
policy of making the poorest poorer while protecting the more well
off. There is a real danger that this cut will force vulnerable
families into the hands of loan sharks. Ordinary working people and
people on benefits must not be sacrificed to pay for the financial mess left by the last Labour Government.
