    So will ATOS get the research contract to look into this then?

    Is it a crime to be different for no choice of your own? What has society got to offer?
    The answer must surely be,nothing at present.
    We, collectively can shape the variables and lay down some common decency. What is happening today will be remembered for a very long time.
    Behind Esther McVeys expensive make up lies the heart of a brutal dictatorship that despises the most poor and vulnerable in society. A dictator that basks in her own glory and ego of being on the centre stage.A politician so devoid of the requirements of the needy that it makes you want to throw up!
    Midnight parties and lavish suppers while in the real world people are struggling in the cold to get to food banks.
    We are plebs,a populus of the forgotten that can be best described as a racid piece of chewing gum stuck to the sole of her Jimmy Choo high heels……
    One day,quite soon that same heal will snap and she will come down to earth with a bang,bringing the most heinous bunch of miscreants down with her.

    Mostly this rise in suicide is linked to lack of oppotunities and future for those in named demographics! Along with this is the actually lack of care and treatment available, not to mention the difficulties in getting said help! If one asks for help then many are told simply either there is no help for them or that many people worse off so they shouldn’t feel so bad!

    If people are committing suicide because of the lack of money given by the DWP, even if they are going to stop paying assessment rate ESA while awaiting tribunal then IMO Income support should be claimed as I believe this is what is paid to immigrants who come here and their immigration status is decided, in simple terms they are not allowed to claim JSA because they are not allowed to look for work and have no other income, so on the same principle of an ESA claimant appealing and having no other income it is my opinion that they should be allowed to claim income support as they hasve no other income

    The Department of Workshy and Painfree helped by the Acceleration to Starvation group, are killing thousands, it just needs proving that these are the majority of these.

    The DWP (DENIAL WITH PERSECUTION) were quick off the mark.Letter after letter kept dropping through my letterbox.£317.56 per fortnight,that constituted my Incapacity Benefit has been taken from me. Thats £8256 per year.
    £71 of the IB was what the DWP says you need to live on. Despite this they decided to take it anyway unless i got medical notes from my doctor.
    Obviously i have appealed and furthermore feel quite capable,but what of the others in our society who have nowhere to turn, and no one to turn to?
    They are being driven to a life of poverty, crime and desperation.

    Sadly, I have as much hope of ATOS being brought to justice as I do IBM being punished for their work cataloguing jews for the Germans in WWII.

    Suffice to say they’ll still be winning government contracts for WWIII.

    On Friday our inglorious leader David Cameron insisted he is “proud” of his reforms (cuts) to benefits.
    He insisted that they were “fair” and “compassionate” (about as fair and compassionate as a scorpion’s sting)

    Politics for them is just a power trip, nothing more
