ROBBING the sick to plug a black hole created by the excesses of greedy bankers could be the Government’s most immoral act yet.
Cancer victims shouldn’t suffer financially because the bonus brigade in the City of London gambled big and lost, triggering a huge rise in the public deficit.
And the unforgivable course would be the one that David Cameron’s government appears to have set. Namely, steamrolling cruel cuts through Parliament.
Mr Cameron claims he is concerned about the sick and disabled yet when it comes to the crunch he adds to their hardship.
The depth of spending cuts and the people who they are hitting are not just issues for debate by politicians and economists.
They are affecting the lives of real people. And we believe the most vulnerable in our country should be treated with respect, not dismissed as figures on a balance sheet.
