Following fourteen years of Conservative-led administration there are no limits to the political resistance to funding for those in greatest need who are unfit to work, as the politics of fear continues in the UK when masquerading as social policies which were designed to cause preventable harm to many.

Successive administrations, and the right-leaning national press, disregard the volumes of published books and research papers which identified the preventable harm generated since the adoption of the Work Capability Assessment in 2008 to limit access to the Employment and Support Allowance long-term disability benefit and, more recently, to limit access to the successor benefit Universal Credit.

Despite the fact that various select committees take evidence from experts, and detailed reports are written, the administration are under no obligation to accept recommendations made by the select committees and so all that evidence is often disregarded. Whilst the reports from the select committees are a matter of public record, if detailed expert testimony is disregarded by the administration then questions need to be asked as to the purpose of the select committees?

Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state

Published in September 2016, Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state is the research evidence the Coalition government tried to suppress, now in a book the Conservative government(s) hope no-one will notice.

Whilst the entire British press have been silenced, and refuse to offer the public access to the influence of corporate America with UK social policy reforms since 1992, Cash Not Care is now in the libraries of universities in the UK and in Australia, and is recommended reading for various social policy courses. The research evidence in the book is being used to educate social policy academics of the future.
