    The DWP, and closing the local job-centres.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 13 Feb 2017, 11:55 am

    DWP admits it hasn’t assessed impact of closing 78 local jobcentres despite announcing policy last month.
    Ministers also admitted they do not know how many disabled people are affected.


    The Department for Work and Pensions has been accused of taking a “cavalier attitude” to closing 78 local jobcentres across the country after it emerged it had not even conducted an impact assessment of the policy.
     
    Ministers denied that the sites to be closed were chosen using Google Maps after many MPs, including a number of Conservatives, raised concerns about the plans in Parliament at the end of January.

    If this act of incredible callousness does not prove that the Tory Party are STILL the "nasty-party" after Theresa may promised that she would change this perception, I say that she has failed miserably and that she is just as typical a Tory as many who have went before.

    What say you ?

    Typically Tory way of doing.

    They never seem to even try to distance themselves from attacking the poor and the disabled.

    They just don't give a f**k.

    Callous and inhumane; but that's par for the course.

    And Theresa May is trying to move the Tory party away from being the "nasty party" too.

    She is failing miserably.

    Our Jobcentre is being shifted into an office at the Borough Council.

    The major point about this is the fact that the jobless are exactly the people who are not liable to have the money to spend on public transport just to find a distant Job-centre.

    This decision is outrageous, and it is not over yet, as there are a lot of influential people who are standing up against this plan.

    Stange that. At one time we had a free bus from the Town Centre to the Council offices. It was discontinued due to lack of use, back when more folk could afford cars. Perhaps time to bring it back?

    The problem with public transport is that it is heavily subsidised by the council even although they are not nationalised services.

    Maybe it is time to re-nationalise all public transport services so that the profit motive no longer gets in the way.

    Agreed, Public Transport should be just that.

    I wish you and I had the power to do that, but we don't.

    The Labour Party have promised to do that if they get back in power, but I doubt very much if they will.
