If you're under 25 and unemployed you probably feel even more depressed and persecuted than usual today. David Cameron feels the need to assert right-wing ideas, and that means a "welfare crackdown", with the young taking the brunt of it. The report in the Telegraph says: "Ministers expect this 'next wave' of benefit cuts to include the axing of all housing benefit currently paid to around 380,000 people aged under 25. Such a move would force many to move back in with their parents rather than living independently."
The Express says: "It could also mean stopping the £70-a-week dole payment for individuals who do not try hard enough to get work and forcing a hard core of unemployed to do community work after two years - or lose all their benefits." Of course, that's just making the ritual noises to appease Tories, but it's another kick in the teeth for the unemployed. Interestingly, the Express has another article entitled "Starving in Britain" which shows clearly the effect of cutting housing benefit, and the struggle of people, even those in work, to feed their children.
If you're not angry enough yet, read the piece in the Mail on Sunday based on an interview with the Dear Leader, from which all the other reports get their information. The headline sets the tone: "Cameron to axe housing benefits for feckless under 25s as he declares war on welfare culture."
Figures in one city I know show that there are 44 unemployed people for every job vacancy. Mandatory Work Activity (MWA) is already forcing people to do unpaid "community" work. Under 25s already can only get housing benefit for shared housing. Etc., etc. There's no need to repeat it.
