The new 'improved' Tory plan to screw over the self employed - aka "universal credit" - pretty much buggers up anyone who does any form of work that's seasonal or variable through the year - eg events, festivals, gardeners, musicians, writers, and so on and is on Working tax credit, Family Tax credit etc.:curse:
The major issues here are:
"work focused interviews" to decide if what you are doing is the best way and you may be better off being employed...
Monthly reporting of income - and no allowance to carry it over to the next month, and no allowance for seasonal fluctuations.
Loss of entitlement if you leave the UK for more than 4 weeks
