UnemployedNet's blog, 45% rise in sanctions leaves more jobseekers destitute, was featured in yesterday's Guardian Society Daily online.

The blog responds to the government's publication of its benefit sanctions figures, which showed a huge jump despite unemployment going down.

It included information on some of the most ridiculous sanctions, and put some of the human stories behind the numbers to help ensure the people suffering under this system aren't forgotten.
