Thousands in court as benefit cuts hit home

Excellent article in the Guardian which highlights the huge numbers of cases going to court as a direct result of the cuts to benefit.

Worth noting that even where small victories have been won, such as the example of somebody supported by Unite winning an appeal against the bedroom tax, the sheer scale of the cuts mean that more and more people are likely to end up in court as a result of debts directly caused by cuts to benefits.
