I just sent emails with this approximate text to various British politicians including Nick Clegg and Ben Bradshaw:
I'm emailing you directly because I'm very worried about a new potential financial disaster for Britain. Looming on the horizon is the question how the changeover to Universal Credit will be handled. If benefit claimants receive their money a little bit earlier than usual because of the changeover there will be no particular worries. On the other hand, if claimants receive their money a bit later than usual there is a potential disaster as enormous numbers of people across the country would then have a shortfall in paying their rent, their credit card repayments, their many other bills and outgoings. The knock-on effect of this would affect banks, credit companies, landlords and every part of the country's economy. It seems to me that there are still a few months in which to avoid disaster.
