“…..there’s whole areas of the country that have been abandoned. This applies to hundreds of thousands of people – if you go round the country you’ll find the food banks in every city. You’ll see people getting sanctioned all the time – 1 million people facing sanctions, which throws peoples lives into chaos. We could have set this film in any city, in any corner of this country.” – Ken Loach
“I think there is some hardship, but Ken Loach is telling a creative story.” – Kwasi Kwarteng
“This system is imposed with conscious cruelty. A man had a heart attack, he is assessed fit to work by the state, he has a heart attack during the course of the assessment and is then sanctioned because he doesn’t complete it.
A man takes his pregnant wife to hospital because she is in premature labour. He misses his appointment, he is sanctioned. No money, life in chaos, new child.
This is consciously cruel. The appeals are successful, the state is knowingly doing this – putting sick, vulnerable people through this.”
