So now the govt can murder people and cover it up and force people below the poverty line into work that makes them worse off or else pay a fine, yep really they just made poverty and receiving welfare a crime. Apparently raising child is not work to our ruling classes (well it isn’t for them, they pay nannies and boarding schools to keep human emotions between them and their children at bay while servicing their careerism, but there’s a clue there, they pay people to do it, so why isn’t lower class child rearing labour valued? Hmm seems to me a subtext of eugenics by economics)
The Welfare Reform Act’s most eye-catching provision is the decision by the government to fine unemployed lone parents with young children if they did not prepare for work while receiving benefits.
Earlier this week MPs overturned a Lords amendment that would have restricted the fines to lone parents whose youngest child was at least five years old. (ht2 HarpyMarx)
