Well, yeah... this is why #UniversalCredit has a 'claimant commitment'. It stems from this idea that unless guided/coerced into good behaviour, people in need of social security are inherently feckless. This stuff has been baked across policy for 10 years of Coalition/Con govts.
Same as those 'household ambition plans' and 'deals' from social landlords that turned a person's home into something they had to prove that they 'deserved'. All the same language in use.
The #bedroomtax portrayed as a policy to address single feckless people clogging up 3 & 4 bedroom houses, when the vast majority of people affected are in households with at least 1 person with a disability, where only 1 room was "spare". Almost like there is a pattern.
