I would certainly agree over ‘nil income’ cases both in HB & Tax Credits

The real issue in farming at least is that farmers/landworkers dont get paid a realistic price for their produce & in the UK, both CAP & Tax Credits took the strain.

Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.
