    Disabled people are a 10th class citizen in a 3rd world country the uk. A simple fact!! No Human Rights whatsoever !!

    Britain is still the seventh or eighth biggest economy in the world. For a country of less than 60 million we punch way above our weight economically. Yet apparently we cannot afford to feed children, house people, educate people, help the disabled have a decent life or keep older people warm in winter. I’m proud to be British but by god I’m ashamed of this government.

      “I’m proud to be British”

      The biggest warmongers the world has ever known, although the British may have been overtaken by the USA by now ?.

    This is what I suspected the gold-plated muggers were thinking. The ultimate (Nazi style) “logic” that if you like what you have but know what you have is due to causing pain and suffering then claim that your good fortune has a genetic basis.

    There is NO, let me repeat ad nauseum, NO basis in science whatsoever for a belief that “poor genes” are what cause social ills. This completely bogus theory is simply a convenience for those over-padded over-heated over-carpeted over-fed selfish bastards to smugly comfort themselves with, to avoid the horrendous guilt they would otherwide feel.

    A lack of acknowledgement or a ruthless disregard for less fortunate citizens is so obviously what creates huge disparities between those with and those without that I can hardly bear to write it down! Research backs this up.

    This “genetics” type of idea is that of eugenics, Social Darwinism, call it what you will, it ignited WW2 courtesy of Hitler. This idea, for that is all it is, led to the calculated murder of 250,000 disabled people before and during WW2, 6 million Jews, countless gay people, Gypsies, on and on the insanity went. Sterilisation of thousands accross Europe carried on in some countries, into the 1970s before being stopped due to a GREATER understanding of biology and society.

    Food banks obviously are needed,but at the same time lets the goverment shirk its duties to us the public,goverment has long since forgotten that they are there to look after the needs of the people who asked them to do this.and I hate to say it,but I can only see a civil war to regain what was,is,our welfare.

    The United Kingdom is one of the richest countries in the world, but under this new and evil government ran by David Cameron we apparently cannot afford to feed ourselves and our children and rely on food banks to keep many of us from starving, we have difficulty in housing and educating people and in helping the disabled have a decent life or keep older people warm in winter.

    From a list of 181 of the poorest and richest countries in the world for 2013, the UK is placed 23rd.
    So how the hell can we have so many people being made homeless and depending on food banks to survive? Even the disabled are now being made homeless as this government strips them of their benefits leaving them without money and a shelter, forcing them to become beggars on the streets to survive.

    What has happened to this government who used to help the poor that now sees the unemployed and the disabled people as worthless scroungers.

    Everyone has the right to live a decent life whether they are employed or unemployed, just because they are unemployed due to not being able to find a job or are too disabled to work isn’t a reason to strip them of their benefits and throw them on to the streets like garbage.

    Whether your disabled or not, we are all human beings with feelings and a heart and soul that sometimes in our lives we need support from those more fortunate to get by in life and its our government that should help its own people.

    Please give us our life back, that’s all we ask.

    Whilst Flash Rich Bastards can Waste Money on Expensive Watches Designer Clothes and all the other Trappings of
    Materialism it is Not Surprising why there is so much Poverty
    in the Land because the Wealth of the Land is in the Hands of
    so Few

    Individualism and I Am All Right Jack Mentality This Country is
    Infested when what is Needed is All For One and One For All

    All steaming from taking away any Human Rights for disabled people. `They are not even fit to have Human Rights.` Even a dog has more Human Rights. Yes the truth hurts, some people who might be abled bodied & ain`t got a clue in a contradictory no class system that we have today.

    “A week ago in Gordon Gecko Moved To London, I wrote about the UK government’s various blindingly bright ideas for its economy, like for instance “a new fiscal mandate that will require further welfare cuts to build an overall budget surplus by the end of the next parliament”, with the 2013-14 budget deficit of £120 billion to fall to £43 billion in 2017-18. The money saved through the £77 billion in welfare cuts to the poor will be used to hand money to the corporate world to achieve the myopic pipedream of “100,000 more companies exporting and a doubling of our exports to £1 trillion by 2020″, the latter being an exact copy of Obama’s earlier goal for US exports, an equally unrealistic piece of cheap political yada yada.”
