What about all those on social welfare and single mothers left this week without their money. Something about a form for residency, which it appears they never received to fill in. Perhaps government attempting to delay payment same day our ministers etc. going on 3 months holidays. Anyone spare a thought for young children tonight without food or light. Shameful.
