         The Guardian has just released this video of a whistle blower explaining how claimants are set up to be "sanctioned", temporally removed from benefit. This is all part of the government's culture of targets, manpower cuts and spending cuts, part and parcel of a sustained attack on the most vulnerable in society. Of course anybody can see that this will push lots of vulnerable people over the edge. It will also go a long way to increase poverty in families and create stress related illnesses. This is Cameron's "Big Society", dump people and let them sink or swim, depending on their ability to access a suitable charity.
