It’s quite distasteful imho. I remember discussing these parts of UC in the early courses we ran c.2013/2014 – the regs have always (pretty much) been ready to be used in this way.

Also: “Latest figures show 422,000 individuals across the UK received a sanction in the year to October 2022. The average penalty was about £660.” Over £275 million ‘saved’ then. I’m sure every sanction was properly decided and morally justified.
