Westminster Austerity & Bad Policy Damage

Asylum Seeker Denied Cancer Treatment By Home Office Dies

"It’s the latest, however, in signs that England is drifting away from its long traditions of universal health care, formalised by the 1945 Labour Government, and away from their survival in Scotland. In the Guardian on September 9th: The safety of vulnerable mothers and newborn babies is being put at risk by NHS fees that deter undocumented migrant women from accessing care, a new report from Maternity Action backed by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) has warned. NHS packages for overseas pregnant women start at £7,000 for antenatal, pregnancy and postnatal care, but can rise to thousands of pounds if the mother or child experience complications."

Bought Politicians

"It has become my firm belief that the destruction of the UK state by the SNP and Plaid Cymru, and the purging of the financial cesspit that is London by Jeremy Corbyn, are both essential to human progress."

The Scottish Child Payment

"The Scottish Government has brought forward a brand new benefit for eligible families of £10 a week for every child under 16. For children under 6 the benefit will start to be paid by early  2021 with the Scottish Child Payment. There are around 4 million children in the UK living in poverty. In Scotland there are approximately 230,000 children living in poverty. The Alston report made it clear that the appalling levels of poverty in the UK were the result of the austerity driven agenda brought in firstly by the LibDem/Conservative Coalition Government and then by successive Conservative Governments. A ‘Harsh & Uncaring’ UK – The Alston Report A string of welfare ‘reforms’ and the introduction of Universal Credit has made it extremely difficult for many people, including those with young families, just to get by on a daily basis. The Scottish Government has attempted to mitigate these policies and have introduced a series of payments to support people when they need it. The new payment for children will be fully delivered by the end of 2022. The payment will be monthly and linked to inflation."
