Stitching-up claimants is all part of the job, says Jobcentre insider

Post by Guest on Wed Jul 15, 2015 8:15 pm

First topic message reminder :

Last week Iain Duncan Smith met a whistle-blower who has worked for his Department for Work and Pensions for more than 20 years.

Giving the Secretary of State a dossier of evidence, the former Jobcentre Plus adviser told him of a “brutal and bullying” culture of “setting claimants up to fail”.

“The pressure to sanction customers was constant,” he said. “It led to people being stitched-up on a daily basis.”

The man wishes to be anonymous but gave his details to IDS, DWP minister Esther McVey and Neil Couling, Head of Jobcentre Plus, who also attended the meeting.

“We were constantly told ‘agitate the customer’ and that ‘any engagement with the customer is an opportunity to ­sanction’,” he told them.

Labour MP Debbie Abrahams, the member of the DWP Select Committee who set up the meeting, has renewed her call for an inquiry into inappropriate sanctioning.

“I am deeply concerned that sanctions are being used to create the illusion the Government is bringing down unemployment,” she said.

Sanctions pre-date the Coalition as a way of ensuring benefit claimants, who include the jobless and sick and disabled people on Employment Support Allowance, attend appointments and apply for jobs. But under the Tory-led Government, they have soared – to 897,690 a year from the most recent data.

from May last year...but no better if not worse Now....


and you wonder why I consider those who work for this shameful organisation to be entirely without honour...

In fact come the revolution i would put them against the brick wall first...

IDS and his troupe of performing monkeys are merely self seeking low lifes

these people are traitors to their own.......

Besides... why are charity shops even being disbursed when you can get new clothes cheap from primark and other places...!?

Disabled and ill people unable to get to hospital and forced out of their homes as personal independence payments (PIP) come under scrutiny by MPs

Mark Harper, the minister for disabled people, will appear in front of the work and pensions select committee on Wednesday today to defend the government’s troubled record on implementation of the new disability benefit, the personal independence payment (PIP).

He will be hoping that the session goes more smoothly than last June’s hearing on the same subject by the public accounts committee when its chair, Margaret Hodge, said the launch of the new assessment system had been “nothing short of a fiasco” and accused the government of letting down “some of the most vulnerable in society”.

Over the past year, charities have highlighted the enormous distress experienced by people who have faced serious delays in being assessed, with some facing waits of up to 14 months for the benefit to be paid.

http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/jan/27/delays-disability-benefit-pip-claimants-mps-scrutiny

That was back in January, it's no better.  You cannot claim ESA anymore, you have to claim for PIP.

Are you sure? There seems to be a lot of info out there on how to claim ESA. I read that PIP is replacing DLA, not ESA.

There's nothing wrong with Primark. However, the stuff in Primark has probably been trampled on the floor more times than the clothes in a charity shop. lol!

Well no, it's about people who claim benefits, and it's not just the unemployed who claim benefits. I was actually replying to Irn at the time, who appeared to be shocked at the idea of second hand clothes - just like you are. Laughing

It is an alternative for everyone and people on low wages or unemployed should be a bit more savvy and A bit less snobbish...

Something from the charity shop would probably be better quality, last longer, and you won't be walking along seeing every other bugger wearing it too!!!

That's right Tommy! Of course the downside is that if you see something you like, it might not be in your size, but hey ... Laughing

I think this all started when I asked if anyone had been told to put on an extra jumper when they were cold, and Korban asked what if people couldn't afford an extra jumper. I said get one from a jumble or a charity shop. The Irn took umbrage at that, and Korban took even more umbrage. Laughing

http://www.ucreative.ac.uk/article/23080/Canterbury-students-film-with-Mary-Queen-of-Shops

Fashion and textiles students from the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury, will be selling customised clothes they have made in an Orpington charity shop on Saturday 14 February.

They are taking part in a documentary with Mary Portas, star of BBC2's Mary Queen of Shops, which aims to challenge public perceptions of charity shops.

Part of Mary's campaign is to challenge the stigma that prevents people using charity shops, change the demographic that donate, volunteer and shop there, and improve the quality of goods available. She aims to make them more of a community centre and a 'living market', selling donations that represent the spirit of the area and appeal to a wider group of people.

That's true. The sizing in Primark is a bit hit and miss. Laughing

A tip for the ladies. If you buy something from Ebay in an "Asian" size, go up about five sizes. Laughing

I have now found the reference. You posted a reference to Mary Portas at 11.03 - after I specifically told you that I was going out earlier than that, so clearly I couldn't reply at the time. There was no link with the post either.

I replied to that post when I came home, and I addressed your point about "stigma". I don't think that one woman speaks for everyone, does she?

Oh well, if Mr Cameron values her opinion and insight, she must be right.

That was sarcasm by the way.

Mary didn't make herself popular in the village. She has some good ideas but she thinks everyone comes from Hampstead Heath.

Probably. Laughing

I don't think she was a very good example to use somehow.

Perhaps both of you should take the empathy test, you obviously are lacking in it.

I mean - if Tommy and I were sitting here saying that we bought expensive new things, and that everyone else should buy second hand things, I could understand Sassy's obnoxious comment, but we're the ones saying we do it ourselves.

Maybe you should get yourself a cleaner pair from a charity shop...!!!


lol!





the fact she cites the general perception of charity shops is the point ,not the fact her business have closed but did you read the reasons she points to the closures ? big company`s taking her summer business

so how citing a failure is grounds to dismiss her opinion is just desperate

So then, people who look down on second hand clothes have "empathy"?

What a strange view - even for a leftie. lol!

Sassy thinks Tommy and I lack empathy because we don't see anything wrong with second hand clothes. Therefore, it follows that she thinks those who do see something with them have empathy.

You do like making yourself look a total tit. The empathy you are lacking in, shows in the way you think of people who are struggling desperately, you and Tommy have a real problem, and I'm not wasting my time talking to people without an empathy button.
