Tens of thousands of low-paid working families can expect to lose up to 200 a month as a result of changes to universal credit introduced on Monday - the first wave of 3bn in welfare cuts that will affect a million households by 2020.

Ministers have said households affected by the changes could work extra hours to make up the difference, but charities have said that would be impossible in many cases, and that the cut would push more families into poverty.

''Shamefaced David Cameron faces a public grilling over his personal tax affairs amid questions about a second secret stash of shares worth 72,000.

The under-fire Prime Minister will make a humiliating statement to Parliament after his tax returns showed he secretly sold off another huge tranche of shares in 2010 alongside the 31,000 stake in his dad’s offshore fund.

Downing Street is refusing to say which other investment funds or private firms the PM held a stake in - and if any more of them were based in dodgy tax havens.''

its totally shameful but expected really when people think simply because you can afford to avoid contributing to society then you should.

cameron wont resign, why should he when the country is half full of apologists for anything the uber rich do, they make the law and the law says its legal so its ok lol

and we'd only end up with the bigger fraudster osborne if he resigned anyway so nothing would change at all.

He did say yesterday that the country, English Britain was about wealth creation and it was understandable that people were entitled to all means of preserving their wealth providing it did not breach his laws.

He is of course entitled as are all his class to the fruits of his mother's (Maggie) conquest of the workers of that English British haven of class ridden aristocrats who now see the class war as having been conclusively won.

They are getting richer and yet ...

''Whitehall officials secretly plotted to charge disabled people for the right to appeal cruel benefit decisions, the Mirror can reveal today.

An internal Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) paper seen by the Mirror shows the Government also considered stopping people’s benefits altogether pending the outcome of an appeal.


Other plans drawn up by the DWP included slashing appeal times from 12 months to just three, and narrowing the scope of appeal tribunals so that fewer are successful.

The proposals are laid bare in a secret DWP document drawn up last year titled ‘Appeals Strategy – post-election planning 2015’.

The document appears to have been a response to the huge number of adverse benefit decisions which are overturned on appeal.

The DWP tried to stop the report being made public - but bungling officials failed to properly redact its contents.

Labour’s shadow work and pensions secretary Owen Smith said: “This secret document shows the inner workings of a department that seems determined to make life harder for disabled people and low-wage working families.''

Apparently Lord (over us) Cameron will not be investigated byparliamentary committees addressing the offshore accounts settlements.
It is obvious that when you make the laws you are entitled to break the laws.

In Australia 80 persons named (not politicians ) are high level career criminals. They are most likely to be allowed to keep their tax free profits as they were not actually produced through work or legitimate commerce. This begs the question, if tax evasion is a crime will the 800 or so Australians mentioned in the Panama papers be brought to justice???? NO NO NOT EVER!
