Benefit rejection targets reveals May's cold, mean-spirit

Responding to reports that the Department for Work and Pensions has set staff a target of rejecting 80% of benefits appeals, Liberal Democrat Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Cathy Bakewell, said:

“The Conservatives have become obsessed with targets, targets that are harsh and damaging and targets that they will never meet.

“Theresa May is forcing fabricated targets upon real people, risking the wrecking of lives to meet a number plucked out of thin air.

“Have no doubt that Theresa May’s cold, mean-spirited Britain is in full swing.

“This election is about your choice over your future. A vote for the Liberal Democrats can change Britain's future.”
