    650 members at a cost of an average basic salary of £66k before increments allowances and expenses and they begrudge us the pittance we get!!

    It is time to seriously look at this ridiculous pantomime, the number of genuine Mps can is very low, pretty much like those who turned out for the constituents at Michael Meachers WCA debate yesterday. Where were the rest of the out of touch and uncaring individuals, that chamber should have been PACKED.

    Thank God Almighty for capable, discerning politicians like Michael Meacher MP.

    73 of us dying each week of Atos (DWP)

    https://twitter.com/SoniaPoulton/status/254887806516740096

    No record of the 43% of us found fit for work who aren’t working or receiving benefits the following year which will mean nothing to the gangster squad but be of terrible concern to anyone with a beating heart

    494 of us dying each week of cold

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/nov/22/fuel-poverty-protestors-die-in-winter-deaths

    1 in 500 of us currently being kept alive by responsible taxpayers at foodbanks leaping impressively to 1 in 250 of us by April

    http://blogs.channel4.com/factcheck/food-banks-is-cameron-on-the-money/12486

    The blame for these deaths lies squarely with the terrorists who launched this vicious and cowardly attack.

    Sign this petition to show the gangster squad what happens when they defame, illegitimise and abandon disabled people:
