People who have been stripped of benefits could be charged by the government for trying to appeal against the decision to an independent judge.

Critics said the proposal, contained in an internal Department for Work and Pensions document leaked to the Guardian, would hit some of the poorest people in Britain, who have been left with little or no income.

In the document about the department's internal finances, officials say the "introduction of a charge for people making appeals against [DWP] decisions to social security tribunals" would raise money.

More proof,if it were needed, that the Tories are barbaric, uncivilised scum.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to me... People don't have an income, you pay them the bare minimum in benefits, then you strip those benefits and you expect people to pay to challenge that decision? They have no money.

Yep. The Nasty Party live up to their name.

I don't know where they expect these people to produce the money needed to appeal from?
I don't think they understand that we don't all have Mummy and Daddy's money to rely on...

Lowering the extortionate wage packets of politicians who are in power would also raise money.
