Politicians across the political spectrum are marginalising society's most vulnerable people in their attempts to establish "hard rules" over benefits, a leading campaigner has told ITV News.
Duncan Shrubsole, from homeless charity Crisis, said the Government's current benefits system is "cruel" and "unfair" and its back-to-work programme is not working.
Mr Shrubsole said he welcomed a public debate on benefits, but without attempts to stereotype and scapegoat claimants, the vast majority of whom he said are actively seeking work.
