Labour/Libdems are Traitors to the British people benefits office run efficiently and fairly

The first story is about how the LibDems and Labour stopped the chance of a Referendum. What has happened to political parties listening to the people? Labour and LibDems are traitors to the people of this Country; they have the arrogance to totally ignore the electorate. What was worse it was the House of Lords that was responsible for this, Yes that unelected body deciding the future of this country.
I would say a vote for Labour and LibDem is a vote for treachery

Next article is about Benefit Street, now I was born in the 1950’s and nobody can say it  was an easy time yet I knew nobody who was on benefit all I can remember is my mother getting Child Allowance.

Although I agree with the clamp down on benefits, I do some times wonder the behavior and attitude of those who work in the benefit office. One of my Tenants who is 61 had a near fatal accident at work in January 30 2013 and since then he has been on the sick he has been to some top consultants as he has a company suing the firm. He has to have regular check ups and attend physiotherapy once a week.  Because he is incapacitated, he receives Housing Benefit, Proportion of Council Tax and £70 week. Just before Christmas he received a letter stating that he was fit to do a Desk Job and his money would be reduced to £60. This assessment was not a physical one is was done not by a Doctor but a member of staff who is not qualified in this matter and overrode the decision of a Consultant. Because he was being changed to a different benefit all his money and allowance were stopped, luckily enough I am his landlord and allowed him time for his rent to come through which was nearly 4 weeks late. Living on £70 week does not allow you to save so because of the vindictiveness of one individual in benefits he had no money for food. So he had to go to a charity Food bank to be able to eat. In Sittingbourne you have prove you have no money and then you are given a ticket and Asda delivers food. He will receive his benefit again on Monday and his Housing Benefit has been restored and backdated but why put him through this type of distress? Especially as he has been told in a few weeks he will be put back on Injury Benefit. How much has this cost the Taxpayer in paper work? Yes lets clamp down on benefits but also lets make our benefits office run efficiently and fairly
