What did you think about the new budget? Thoughts on the £20 uplift extension, or what was missing?: "Hi, what about the new budget ideas of extending the 20-pound uplift one over six months is? But dubious is we're getting out of pay money that you kind of owe people had a five-year sort of benefit freeze unless you can argue about quite a lot of help during covid and many people haven't which is something that needs to be addressed. I think looked at as well. There was talk about giving a one-off 500 pounds which is still six months before. I thinks it's worth of the uplift. Anyway, basically, I agree that they cut the 20-pound can't can government's point of view. Especially now more people on universal connection. And before I believe this should have been extended towards people on Esa and other benefits that are not getting these up because the end of the day they're still not working and I need the money maybe 10 pounds half it 10 pounds per hour. Keep it going. Loads of money everything's gone up things are still going up dramatically and fast and if the benefits don't go up then we're just on a massive pay decrease. I don't think is good a sustainable. And yeah, I don't know beautiful shameful. Yeah, I could because lots of words. I'm going to try and reply on this one wonky ago."
