NB 43 % of carers are male,given less likely to view/say as such you can up that figure.I don't think it helpful,quite the opposite,to falsely portray/exaggerate the actual difference.As for "financial",reversing the targeted cuts in particular situations introduced specifically to facillitate care/self care would be a start but of course the word benefits blinds the stupid into unthinking fuckwittery.

So let's get this right.The Government thinks getting more disabled people that have carers into work will help financially whilst introducing loan replacement with interest rather than minimal benefit income,maintains hospital beds must pay for their spare room subject to discretion and advocates increased charging/equalising regime with in a home rather than in own home for any social care that facillitates it.
"These are close friends of the Conservative party. As one senior representative of a leading business organisation says: “Over the past two years, most company bosses would never risk saying openly that Brexit is turning out to be a disaster, in case it scared off their best staff.”'

(cJA emphasis) Staff members probably understand without the heads' up. I'm more than annoyed with what I've emphasised above and I'm not entirely sure why. It's as though people matter to business as tools used, nothing more. I may be mistaken; I may be reading too little or too much into it. I'm unhappy with business and political leadership cavalierly negotiating with millions of peoples' lives. People aren't tools. They don't go on a shelf when convenient for business remaining there until they're needed again. Spreadsheet analysis involving human beings is repugnant to me.
First legal challenge against Universal Credit finds Government acted unlawfully
"" Prior to moving, both TP and AR were in receipt of the Severe Disability Premium (SDP) and Enhanced Disability Premium (EDP), which were specifically aimed at meeting the additional care needs of severely disabled people living alone with no carer.
Recently released figures from the DWP suggest that 500,000 individuals are in receipt of the SDP . Both the SDP and EDP have been axed and are not available under Universal Credit.
When they moved both TP and AR were required to make a claim for Universal Credit as they moved into local authorities where the controversial new benefit was being rolled out. According to both the men, they were advised by DWP staff that their benefit entitlement would not change.""
Indeed,as well as similar "complexities" or attending to actual circumstances,views differ,under the guise of simplification.Frustrating at the time that the "agree in principle"took hold,now constrained by past utterations etc.As,I boringly state complexity, evidential introduced attending to situations,differing societal changes,practices,intentions,particular away from institutions and facillitating self care/care in own home hard fought for isn't a problem but bloody essential.
From the memorandum of understanding about legislative consent motions (the issue causing a problem about devolved powers at the moment).
14. The United Kingdom Parliament retains authority to legislate on any issue, whether devolved or not. It is ultimately for Parliament to decide what use to make of that power. However, the UK Government will proceed in accordance with the convention that the UK Parliament would not normally legislate with regard to devolved matters except with the agreement of the devolved legislature. The devolved administrations will be responsible for seeking such agreement as may be required for this purpose on an approach from the UK Government.
So the UK government's case is that (1) we have authority to proceed where we want to and (2) these are not normal circumstances and therefore (3) we can proceed as we want to.
The Queen holds weekly audiences with The Prime Minister where they discuss Government matters. --- Although The Queen is politically neutral, she is kept up-to-date with political affairs and retains the right to express her views during these meetings.
I am hearing Tory rebel Remainers are happy with government’s redrafting of amendment giving MPs a “meaningful vote” on Brexit deal or no-deal. “We are in a good place”, says one. Which presumably means True Brexiters won’t be. Hello @Jacob_Rees_Mogg 2:03 PM - Jun 14, 2018 (Politics Live, Guardian)
