CONSERVATIVE backbenchers who backed tax rises for social care are against cutting Universal Credit by £20 and what the f**k?
Tories – Tories! – are concerned that reducing the benefit to pre-pandemic levels will make millions destitute and spark a backlash, causing widespread bafflement across the UK.
Joe Turner of Nantwich said: “Apparently it will cause homelessness, poverty and cause kids to go hungry. Like obviously. But what blows my tiny mind is that the Tories give a shit.
“You’d think they’d be cheering it on, like they did when Thatcher made entire cities destitute or Cameron announced permanent austerity. So what the buggery f**k’s happened to them?
“Just because loads of them are Northern now shouldn’t mean they’ve stopped being cold-hearted bastards. But instead they’re bleating about how ordinary people will suffer as if that wasn’t their entire reason for being in government.”
Susan Traherne, member for Congleton, said: “The calculation is that the nation’s hateful bigoted bastards will vote for us even if we help people because, post-Farage, they’ve nowhere else to go.
“But I won’t lie, it’s a f**king risk. I’d be much more comfortable letting the poor starve.”
