Sadly, this isn’t the first and won’t be the last case of this type, as the vicious Con-Dem coalition government rips apart the safety net of the welfare state and makes the most vulnerable in society pay the price for the bankers greed and wrecklessness.

Unite Community will continue to fight on behalf of all the vistims of the cuts, both through ensuring people get the help and advice they need when their own benefits lifeline is under attack, as well as campaigning on the streets against the injustice of the cuts which are causing so much damage in communities across the nation.
