Universal Credit slammed by MPs: Late programme branded 'unacceptable'

Might be a bit wide of the mark but as the rules for new claims for UC change in April 2017 so that you only get benefits for the first two children and the first is not at the higher rate as was the case previously then delaying getting people on to UC would actually benefit the government in monetary terms.

It's also nice to see that Corbyn for all his "for the people" socialist commentary with regards to tax credits the sames cuts are still going to happen. I don't for one minute believe he was unaware of this.

These changes don't make a difference to me but I can't help but think democracy is a bit of a sham.
