The Tories aren’t interested in fixing Universal Credit because it is doing what the Conservative government designed it to do; punish the poor for their own poverty.
This is why voting the Tories out is so important. The Tories will continue implementing their cruel policies as long as they are in government and regardless of who is their leader or what happens with Brexit.
for centrists and blairites, brexit has unfortunately just become another way to undermine the labour left and jeremy corbyn because now even discussing lgbt rights, poverty, and justice for grenfell are seen as “distractions”. jeremy corbyn just tweeted about brexit four hours ago, but for blairites nothing will ever be enough.
centrists and blairites don’t care about tory austerity because they’ve never been affected by the suffering it’s caused. they would rather have a conservative government (which will continue neoliberal austerity and deliver the worst possible brexit deal) than have a leftist leader like jeremy corbyn become prime minister.
centrists and blairites know that focusing solely on brexit and ignoring the current horrific policies of the tory government will help keep the conservatives in power. they don’t care.
