Universal basic income is a great idea, which is also why it won't happen

So I take it that you don't need anti fraud departments to prevent identity theft and then getting a 100% rise in UBI income through stealing the identity of somebody who's died or gone abroad?

And also that with UBI at £400 per month is enough to scrap disability benefit, housing benefit and everything else.

Meanwhile, in the real world the department that used to manage unemployment benefit ends up managing universal benefit, and all of the other departments continue to exist.
