Jimmy Stirling's DWP Diary: Preparing for Christmas under a sanctions threat is tough
61-year-old Jimmy Stirling goes into the Christmas period with no conclusion on whether or not he will be sanctioned over a Community Work Programme
I AM Jimmy Stirling, a 61-year-old unemployed graphic designer, photographer and musician, single grandfather and social housing tenant living in Glasgow.
I receive Jobseeker's Allowance of PS50 per week and have a very small pension payment of just under PS25 per week. I do voluntary work for my neighbouring community and look after one of my granddaughters for two days per week.
