    :(

    Not at all clear what has happened to lead to this event.

    We're going to be holding a rally tomorrow at 3pm if anyone around in Birmingham wants to come down

    Best guess right now is that the person had payments delayed or problems with being able to sign on, rather than having been sanctioned. If that's the case then the cuts to job centre staff and funding for CAB etc. must have played a large part in this.

    Sadly, we're likely to see more of this sort of thing and not just in Jobcentres either. Council offices and Housing Associations (which charge extortionate rents, while their CEO's rake in 6-figure salaries + bonuses) could be the next venues.

    I'm out so I can't merge things, but I'll lock it and merge the two when I get back.
