  • Nov.19.2018: Amber Rudd condemns UN poverty report in combative return to frontline politics. New work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd dismisses ‘disappointing’ study of UK. Amber Rudd has used her first appearance in the House of Commons as work and pensions secretary to condemn a UN inquiry into poverty in the UK over what she said was the “extraordinary political nature” of its language. The UN’s rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights said the govt had inflicted poverty on people through austerity, and called levels of child poverty “not just a disgrace but a social calamity and an economic disaster”. He also attacked Universal Credit, which had been beset by problems during McVey’s time in the job. Peter Walker, The Guardian.
