As Theresa May announces her intention to hold a general election on 8 June, we ask: is there anyone for claimants to vote for?
Assuming, as seems likely, that May gets her way and parliament votes in favour of an election, who will you vote for?
In some parts of the UK, such as Scotland, many claimants may consider that there is one party that is clearly more claimant friendly than the rest.
But, if you live in England in particular, you may feel that it is struggle to find a party with a realistic chance of winning a significant number of seats but which is also willing to stick up for the rights of people on benefits.
The Conservatives are clearly out to take as much cash as they can from sick and disabled claimants, the Lib Dems supported repeated attacks on claimants' income when they were in coalition with the Tories whilst Labour have been utterly ineffective and largely uninterested in fighting for claimants whilst in opposition.
Benefits and Work will not be supporting any party in the forthcoming elections, but we’d be very interested in hearing your opinions in the comments section below.
