<p>THE NEW WELFARE REFORM BILL TAKES AFFECT IN APRIL. AS WE ALL KNOW THE MAJORITY DO NOT WANT THIS RIDICULOUS VACANT BEDROOM TAX, HOWEVER ANOTHER VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE WILL BE THE TOTAL RE ORGANISATION OF ALL BENEFITS. WE WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO REFER TO INCOME SUPPORT, JOB SEEKERS ALLOWANCE, DLA, ETC ETC BECAUSE ALL BENEFITS BEING PAID OUT WILL NOW BECOME A&nbsp;'UNIVERSAL PAYMENT'.</p><p>UNDER THIS UMBERELLA OF UNIVERSAL PAYMENTS WILL ALSO INCLUDE RENT ALLOWANCE AND COUNCIL TAX ALLOWANCE. </p><p>AFTER SPEAKING TO A WOMAN WHO WORKS AT A WELL KNOWN HOUSING ASSOCIATION IN THE NORTH WEST, SHE EXPRESSED HER CONCERNS ABOUT THIS 'UNIVERSAL PAYMENT' BECAUSE UNDER THE NEW WELFARE REFORM BILL, &nbsp;RENT AND COUNCIL TAX PAYMENTS WILL BE PAID DIRECTLY TO THE CLAIMANT WHEREAS BEFORE THE RENT ALLOWANCE WOULD BE PAID DIRECTLY TO THE LANDLORD/HSG ASSOC/COUNCIL OFFICES &nbsp;</p><p>THIS WOMAN SAID IT WILL BE SO HARD NOW TO GET RENT FROM THEIR TENANTS WHO E.G. DRUG USERS AND ALCOHOLICS IF THE TEMPTATION IS THERE THEY WILL CEASE IT - SHE SAID SHE COULD FORESEE LOTS OF EVICTIONS FOR NON PAYMENT OF RENT.</p><p>ITS LIKE DANGLING A CARROT INFRONT OF A DONKEY! GIVE AN ALCOHOLIC OR DRUG USER THE MEANS, IT'S GUARANTEED WHAT THEY WILL DO WITH THIS MONEY FOR THEIR RENT AND IF YOU THINK THEY WILL PAY THEIR RENT WITH IT THEN YOU ARE MISTAKEN! WE ALL KNOW WITH ALCOHOLICS AND DRUG USERS GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUITY AND THEY WILL TAKE IT! </p><p>I THINK THIS IS VERY UNFAIR TO THE ALCOHOLIC AND DRUG USER TO PUT THIS TEMPTATION THEIR WAY, I DO BELIEVE THIS IS ENTRAPMENT AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WOULD HAPPEN&nbsp;IF THEY DECIDED TO CHANGE THESE WELFARE BILLS! THEY ARE GUILTY OF ENTRAPPING THE ALCOHOLICS AND DRUG USERS WHO ARE SUFFERING 'REAL' ILLNESSES - ASK THEIR FAMILIES THE HEARTACHE THEY ARE GOING THROUGH, NOW THEY WILL HAVE THE ADDED STRESS OF WORRYING IF THEY HAVE PAID THEIR RENT AND COUNCIL TAX, ITS A WORRY THEY CAN DO WITHOUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR CAMERON!</p><p>I BELIEVE THIS CAN ONLY GO ONE WAY IF THE NEW WELFARE REFORM BILLS ARE IMPLEMENTED - IT WILL LEAD TO TEMPTATION, DESTITUTION, HOMELESSNESS AND MASS SUICIDE! YES YOU READ THIS RIGHT BECAUSE IF THEY DON'T PAY THEIR RENT AND COUNCIL TAX'S THEY WILL END UP ON THE STREETS - CRIME RATES WILL GO UP AS A DIRECT RESULT AND THESE PEOPLE WILL SUFFER UNNECESSARILY - IT CAN ALL BE AVOIDED BY STOPPING THIS DIRECT PAYMENT OF RENT AND COUNCIL TAX TO THE CLAIMANT!</p><p>MAYBE YOU THINK THIS IS A BIT EXTREME BUT THIS I CAN ASSURE YOU IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THESE PEOPLE IF THE GOVERNMENT MAKE THESE CHANGES, I WAS MARRIED TO AN ALCOHOLIC/DRUG ABUSER I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT&nbsp;- WHY FIX IT WHEN IT IS NOT BROKEN?</p><p>THE MAJORITY OF ALCOHOLICS AND DRUG USERS DO NOT HAVE THIS LIFE STYLE BY CHOICE! A LOT OF THEM DO NOT WANT TO BE LIKE THIS, THEY NEED HELP BUT CAN'T ACCESS IT BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT THE RESOURCES IN PLACE ANYMORE DUE TO THESE AUSTERITY CUTS! - THE ONLY WAY THEY SEEM TO BE ABLE TO GET HELP THESE DAYS IS FROM THE JEREMY KYLE SHOW.</p><p>I FEEL SORRY FOR THESE PEOPLE WHO WILL SUFFER UNNECESSARILY UNDER THESE NEW WELFARE REFORM BILLS, I BELIEVE THIS MOVE IS AN INTENTIONAL ONE BY THE GOVERNMENT SO THEY CAN WEED THEM OUT AND LET THEM DESTROY THEMSELVES BY PUTTING TEMPTATION THEIR WAY!</p><p>PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION TO STOP THESE RIDICULOUS AND EVIL WELFARE CHANGES.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>P.S. BY THE WAY I DO NOT DRINK AND THE ONLY DRUGS I TAKE IS WHAT HAS BEEN PRESCRIBED ME FROM MY GP BECAUSE I AM DISABLED LIVING IN CHRONIC PAIN.&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><br>THANK YOU IN ANTICIPATION OF YOUR SUPPORT - WE HAVE A VOICE SO PLEASE USE IT NOW THANK YOU</p>
