"Checked bank account. Housing benefit usual fortnightly amount of £273 is reduced to £195. Its bank holiday long weekend and nobody can answer my phonecall in the council until they return on Tuesday. No letter, no warning in advance.
This happened 3 years ago and 4 years ago and 5 years ago and 6 years ago.
Housing benefit cuts and being made evicted from private lets flats.
Ofcourse they need to recover all the extra budget they paid out to self employed during the pandemic. The self employed abusers fathers who refuse to pay child maintenance. So there you go. Leave a violent situation and not only do the Gov reward the abuser by allowing him ti co tinue with financial abuse, they ensure the victims ( dont like that word) sre punished by cutting their benefits and making them homeless.
