    On the video I saw of them yesterday, he said they had to walk 12 miles A DAY to the soup kitchen and back, not 10 miles a week.

    Good enough to wear uniform and be sent to die in that uniform by Govt, now he has hit hard times it is easier for the state if he (and his wife) die and save some money, I hope cameron is pleased that the Govt has just saved £57.50 a week, I equally hope that somewhere in the “Mother of Parliaments” the expenses loving MP’s who allowed this situation to happen now realise if you leave people with nothing, they have nothing to lose, and when that happens MP’s will find themselves looking at more avoidable deaths and at the same time looking over their shoulders to see if they are being followed by someone with ……”nothing to lose”…..

    This unfortunately the reality of most politicians thinking, they have no idea and couldn’t care less any way once in power especially those born to be rich. their are going to be alot more of this most of which we wont hear about or wont associate with the politicians of death. this is the reason why the system put these people over us

    This story came to my attention yesterday morning,and it reflects my wife’s and I situation in a small way though we are in a somewhat less unfortunate position.It was very moving story so I decided to share it. I used Facebook David Cameron page,because I was so angry.Now this very morning would you believe after 18 months we recieved a reply from the appeal section for claiming sickness benefit at the beginning of 2010 with an appointment date.I don’t for one second think this is just coincidence,more of a case of spying by the authorities,trying to cover their backs.Without going into too many details my wife was having somekind of fit, and only now with recent diagnosis it seems this was diabetic,so she was pushed back into work by one of our local GP’s even though I had told him that physical work (chef) brought on these frightening attacks.We are self employed so during that time our business came to a standstill.Hopefully when we see the diabetes nurse next week we will be able to re-start business with more confidence,in the possesion of the right medicine and advice instead of risking my wife’s health any further.

    What a fucking disgrace. When are the rest of the UK going to wake up. Probably when the mainstream media stop demonising us. I won’t commit suicide but I would willingly get shot trying to top that bastard Cameron.

    Iain Duncan Shit should be extremely pleased with himself, this is the reality of getting people off benefits.

    A man who served his country, a man too scared to claim benefits in case he lost his wife after losing their child to state care.

    The most horrific thing is something like this could easily happen to anyone else on benefits that is sanctioned.

    Well done DWP your out of work support helped them so much! and I’m sure Atos would have refused them ESA if they had managed to overcome all the obstacles in their way to make a claim for it.

    What a vile disgusting government we have.

    This is another very sad case that epitomises the regime in charge’s conduct ,don’t the thick Tory bastards know that life is cyclic and their inhumane actions against the public will be turned around and they will be on the receiving end of similar misfortunes.Hitlers top Nazi’s thought they were untouchable and look what happened to them.
    Cameron ,Osborne ,ID Smith and Grayling are no more than lying thieves who rule this Country through fear and illegal acts against the populace through their total ignorance of decency .They must learn that their authority is only ‘lent’ the populace are the real voice of democracy in this Country and we will be taking it back .History repeats itself enjoy your short stay and be ready to reap the repercussions of your inhumane actions .

    i know just how the couple feel my benefits are shrinking and the cost of living is going up, and come april i will be having to pay bedroom tax cause i dare to want to have my autistic child home for weekends, and he has to have his own room, its all wrong i am housbound so already have not much of a life stuck in my house 24/7, not being able to aford to have my heating on and soon not being able to aford internet access, which is my only contact with the world, so at that point when there is nothing to look forward to except another day in solitary confinment apart from a visit for 60 seconds from meals on wheels at lunch time it comes down to that question is it worth the fight, i hope that David Cameron and his party, and all you tax payers out there who buy into this why should my taxes be used on the work shy crap end up like me, because once many years ago I WAS YOU !!!
