HIGH COURT RULES THAT TORY POLICY CAUSING “REAL MISERY” FOR “NO GOOD PURPOSE”

The Tories shameful benefits cap for lone parents under two has been ruled ‘unlawful’ and ‘discriminatory’ by the High Court.

This is a humiliating defeat for the UK Government – accused of causing “real misery” for “no good purpose” – and highlights the human cost of continuing with callous welfare cuts.

The Tories’ disastrous policies have been proven to force low-income families into unnecessary hardship. It’s time that the UK Government learn from this ruling and listen to calls to end their obsession with austerity altogether.
