"This week has been a complete mess, I was meant to be being interviewed by someone from the BBC but on the day of the interview I had to cancel as my uncle passed away. It’s just all messed up.

The budget as usual is pathetic, a blanket £20 extra for 6 months for universal credit is just an insult, £20 in these times won’t even keep a family warm for a week. Maybe the government should take off the rose tinted glasses that makes them think that £20 will help with the rising poverty in this country especially when they think nothing of spending £100+ on lunch at the tax payers expense.
