    Thank You, Sandy_123, for clarifying. I don't know where to start, but I think one of the main topics on people's minds is the cost of living issue. Unsurprisingly, the government, not generalising, would target people on benefit again. They took my benefit away last time they clawed back some money. I read, not sure if this is correct, that Atos claimed back 110 million, a victory for them but for many people who had their gas, electricity and other things cut off, it was far from a victory. I think there should be a law against this, it is very one-sided, and there should be an alternative put in place so they just don't leave people in an even more vulnerable, desperate state. No money, no job and eventually no place to live. Sorry if this is too deep.
