    It so sad, but happening all the time.  I watched another documentary and an older gent, whose wife had passed was sanctioned, all because he did not know how to work a computer and just didn’t understand his commitments for his journal, long story it made him very ill, mental health suffered, in debt, rent Arrears and then evicted, from the home he lived more than 35 years. Was heartbreaking, he final statement was, the world has gone barmy and I feel left behind, he said he was forgotten about in this digital world 🌍😢

    Not sure I could sit through another one as sad as Daniel Blake I was full of many emotions inc .anger  rage  upset sad  sheer disbelief of staff getting away with the lack of care and humiliation of people so desperate in life they should be made to sign on and look for work .as they should .not be allowed to hold their position s
