    I hope to live to see the day when these bastards in government face a criminal court on charges of manslaughter or better still murder…

    But why is no law firm willing to take this on? Why is Labour so quiet on this issue…its criminal and the silence is deafening!

      It’s Labour’s silence that’s SO disgraceful – all down to the fear of losing votes among people who by definition don’t hold to Labour values. The opposition’s job is to challenge, and if the opposition doesn’t do its job, then any discussion is for all practical purposes dead in the water. It undermines democracy. And that’s before you take it into account that Labour claims to be inclusive of ALL the working classes – including those who aren’t able to work,

      To be fair, Ed Milliband has said that Labour will sack ATOS, if Labour win the next election, Let’s hope he is true to his word, But that doesn’t help all the people who have died, RIP Ian

      dwp always say that they take into account info from the person’s GP yet some GPs are refusing to provide info as it’s too much bother for them.

    ……..you can mistreat an animal and have recourse to report to the action to the RSPCA,where action will be taken including photo evidence to the courts, yet discrimination to the disabled, is the new norm, and nothing is done whatsoever………………

    It’s not sad, it absolutely disgusting in this century!!!

    Taking away a persons capability to live, is neither a sport, nor a mistake………

    It’s an act of barbarism that has been blessed by the very people who purport to represent the wishes of the electorate.

    We all know that the people of our once proud nation did not want this. It is an organised cull of the most weakest and less likely to protest.

    The welfare reform act has been blessed by our monarch, the Queen. What the fuck does she know about the abuse that has been launched on her plebs, the minions that allow her to waltz around in her robes and jewellery, while we starve.

    My dad always told me that she would’nt know which end of a corgi the shit came out of, because somebody on a minimum wage will have to pick it up. I know what he mean’t.

    Never has society been so divided and the legacy is getting worse. It seems that the only way up a ladder is to push someone firmly down……………

    Killing someone by stealing their benefits is now an acceptable trend. If laws say it is alright to do this, who will argue?

    For one, the UNITED NATIONS and the HUMAN RIGHTS LEGISLATION.

    Our government dismissed the investigations by the special envoy, rapporteur Raquel Rolnic, who put forward a damning report on the “Bedroom Tax”. In fact they ridiculed her publicly and in the tabloids.

    Anyone who is signatory to human rights acts also has a duty to uphold them for the common decency of the people within the act. The UK is in flagrant breach of Human Rights and the government know this, in fact they actively promote it!

    The proverbial shit will hit the fan and who takes the blame is anyones guess?

    How do you compensate for someones life that has been stolen and all the undue pressures on the vulnerable?

    Watch this space as all the ghosts of christmas past, come to haunt them……

    I had to sit before an individual last year and was deemed fit to work, despite suffering from depression. I too was asked to go through a series of pointless physical moves during my examination.
    My GP refused to write supporting my appeal against this decision, siting that he had given his medical opinion by issuing me with a sick note. He felt that the whole process ignored his and his colleagues’ professional opinion and that further entreaty was a waste of his time, as no-one at the DWP was interested.
    I can see his point. When a Government Department, fuelled by Political dogma, is intend upon reaching a particular conclusion, there is little that we, as individuals, can do to stop it. It is only by collective action that we stand any chance of righting this wrong.
