New Year’s Resolutions For The DWP, Inspired By Daniel Blake

Three captains took their turn in 2016 at trying to plot a safe course for the enormous oil tanker that is the Department for Work and Pensions: Iain Duncan Smith, Stephen Crabb, and Damian Green.

Since 2010, the Department has been pulled in different directions by three often competing priorities: ensuring paid work represents a route out of poverty, delivering cuts, and protecting the most vulnerable.

The shipping forecast for the first two captains had been presented by the then Chancellor, George Osborne, with the announcement of £12bn of cuts from the working-age welfare budget to be delivered by 2020.

IDS went full-steam ahead with Universal Credit – a new working-age benefit which was meant to roll six benefits into one – but it was beset by stormy weather from the moment it left port, and went completely off course in 2016.
In March, Osborne announced an additional multibillion pound cut to benefits paid to severely disabled people. IDS chose this moment to abandon ship, and his replacement, Stephen Crabb, was shortly knocked overboard by the change of government following the referendum.
