After checking my calender to make sure I was not caught up in a time warp back to April it appears that DWP are to cut the annual £10 Christmas "bonus" (if you could call it such) for those on Universal Credit.

I don't know how this plays out for those still on legacy/old qualifying benefits, the information only references UC.

I know, its a tenner, but still... were they not chipping on about the "end of austerity" a week or two ago?
