Film: I Daniel Blake

By: Paul Donovan

Paul Donovan reviews 'I, Daniel Blake' in his latest blog.

Ken Loach's film, I, Daniel Blake, offers a great insight into the way that the welfare system has been changed from a support structure for those in need to a means of punishing the poor and vulnerable.

The film demonstrates this transition, highlighting how in the worst cases, the punative inhumane actions of those in charge are actually killing people.

The growing inhumanity of the system has been well documented by charities such as the Caritas Social Action Network which produced a report last year titled the Impact of Welfare Changes which highlighted how claimants were being pushed to the brink.
