During yesterdays restful day I decided to type key words into the videos page of JSUK to ‘fondly’ look back on 5 years of video uploading. I don’t always tag videos properly, so I decided to search ‘ Universal Credit’ ‘DWP’ and ‘Atos’. The first video I uploaded under the DWP tag was talking about people being sanctioned to meet sanction targets and it leading to increased Foodbank usage when they are left destitute. The very same topic I had uploaded Sky News clips about last week.
It’s a very bitter sweet moment to look back to five years ago and see the same issue presented in exactly the same way in 2013 as it is in 2018. On the one hand you can clearly see a sense of page growth between the two uploads, on the other it is a bit annoying that I still have to post about such things. But, as I’ve said in the past, if it helps just one person understand what is happening than that’s a job well done in my book.
I got unfairly sanctioned in a Universal Credit pilot area, so if nothing else it helps me understand what is going on.
Millions of Facebook shares, views, comments and interactions later and here we are.
You can’t keep the truth down forever. Even if you did try to infiltrate me back in 2014. RIP Jsuk News Radio.
It’s been quite the journey.
