The reality, of course, was more the case that a lot of older miners etc being made redundant at that time were often suffering from severe ill health as a direct consequence of their occupations.
There are lots of reasons other than fraud that explains a growing sickness and disability budget. Everything from charities helping people with mental health problems they didn't previously know they qualified for with their applications. The consequence of two prolonged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. More women moving into work and households becoming reliant on two wages to pay housing costs meaning a second wage earner needing to make a claim while before households may have managed on one wage. Oh and the one that's putting a strain on pensions as well - people not dying because the NHS was properly funded under Labour. The Tories seem to be trying to fix that last one though...

Idle speculation, but would taking sickness and disability benefits out of universal credit be a half way house to scrapping UC altogether? All benefits would still need huge reform, but the idea has been posited that we're at the point where scrapping UC is as costly and complicated as fixing it, yet for me treating people on ESA the same as people on JSA within the same benefit makes no sense. The "one single payment" thing particularly makes no sense because you will never claim JSA and ESA at the same time so they will never achieve an efficiency of them being paid " together" so why not take the simpler routx of assessing and paying ESA separately?

As I say, an idle thought. We're a long way from having a government in power who wants to fix UC at the moment, unfortunately.

One of the most bizarre things about universal credit is the idea that forcing people to apply for multiple benefits when they may only be interested in claiming one would either be "simpler" or "save money". Someone who only wants to apply for housing benefit now has to fill out a form for 5 other benefits and be assessed for them when before they were only assessed for one. It's kind of like the opposite of efficiency. It's like Ikea. You're interested in buying bedroom furniture but you can't just go to the bedroom furniture section you also have to visit every other room in the house to get there. Unless you take one of those funny little shortcuts round the back of a mirror but that usually just ends up getting you completely lost. I rather imagine filling out the UC application form is a bit like that. One wrong turn and you're back in sofas and have to start all over again.

I really don't think the fact that people with mental health conditions seem to be particularly poorly served by new assessments is accidental. There's a lot of evidence that the growth in the sickness/disability benefits bill under Labour was in part due to increased mental health claims, though not necessarily a growth in mental health issues, which is why the argument that the bill was running out of control and was growing exponentially was malicious and false. People who qualified but never previously claimed would only add to the figures once after which growth would be in line with growth in new mental health issues and thus return closer to trend for other disabilities. The coalition would have known this, the figures were clearly used cynically to falsely represent a growing problem of fraudulent claims or conditions believed to be self-inflicted and thus undeserving in order to justify harsh assessments and cut payments, rather than the reality of people who had long lived with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder etc finally getting the help they needed to live more stable and productive lives. Something that, as you have been pointing out, is absolutely vital when more expensive institutional placements have been closed for the very reasonable aim of giving people more autonomy over their own lives.

"UK rabbi warns of genocide risk in Trump policies"
Quote:
Expressing concerns widely shared among Jewish leaders – who campaign constantly to remind the world of circumstances leading to the Holocaust – and other religious figures, she said: “The numbing of empathy, the dehumanisation of other people through the encouragement of disdain are documented stages in history that have led to atrocities and even genocides
“What has happened on the US-Mexico border is a moment of reckoning as it points to a systemic toxicity in public discourse and action. This needs to be stopped now.” She said the planned visit by Trump to the UK next month should go ahead: “I believe that our prime minister should be meeting her counterpart, to convey to him in the strongest terms the depth of opposition that these policies have evoked."
...............
At prime minister’s questions last week May – whose own immigration policies particularly as home secretary, have been criticised by charities and others – said she did not approve of Trump’s treatment of families, and that his visit would be an opportunity to convey that message.

Something along the lines of previous post, would be nice.
