Will you, Mark Reckless of ukip, call for the repeal of the Bedroom Tax (rather than continue with ukip’s pointless we oppose the Bedroom Tax line)?
In fact, if re-elected, will you vote in favour of the Private Member’s Bill seeking to reduce the impact of the Bedroom Tax?
Will you go into the lobby with Green, Labour, Liberal Democrat and other opposition party MPs to support this bill?
Will you call for:
the urgent reform of the ESA/WCA process, that has brought death and misery to so many since May 2010?
a scaling back of the JSA sanctions regime?
a return to effective, proven support to help people into work?
the scrapping of the Work Programme?
an end to contracting out by DWP?
the Government to do more to ensure that people in receipt of Social Security payments, Tax Credits etc get all of the money to which they are entitled?
the Government to make serious efforts to increase take up of Social Security, Tax Credits etc?
the Government to scale back DWP’s fraud efforts and transfer the freed up resources to tackle tax fraud and alegal tax avoidance?
the Government to scrap Universal Credit?
the Government to return Universal Jobsmatch to its default settings?
the Government to rethink it’s policy of Digital by Default?
the Government to make significant changes to PIP?
more money for Council Tax Benefit?
a review of the various Social Security changes that have made life worse for those on low incomes since May 2010?
a concerted cross party campaign against the vilification of the working poor and those on Social Security?
Will you, in fact, Mark Reckless dispel the rumours and comments put about by ukip’s supporters that ukip thinks IDS has been soft on those in receipt of Social Security?
Of course, many of the the above questions may be put to all those standing in Rochester and Strood, and in every other constituency, in next year’s General Election. The GE campaign is now well under way.
Go get them, chaps!
