It is shameful, disgusting and deplorable that Department for Work and Pensions minister Ms Newton is imitating an Ostrich, the evidence is there but if you are not prepared to look then you will not see it.

Govt Newspeak

Tory minister says it’s ‘shameful’ to claim benefit cuts have driven people to suicide – I don’t know what planet Sarah Newton’s living on to say such terrible lies.

Sarah Newton said claims were ‘unsubstantiated’ and critics ‘deliberately misuse data’ to accuse Tory welfare reforms of driving people to death DID SHE READ THE UN REPORTS AND BENEFIT DEATHS DATA!

The estimable Peter Stefanovic has suggested that “when Benefit cuts force an incontinent cancer survivor to ‘re-use nappies’ you know the system is failing on an industrial scale”.

This Writer begs to differ.

The system is doing exactly what the Conservatives want.

The lady Mr Field mentions has been targeted very specifically by the Tory-run Department for Work and Pensions.

The idea was to deprive her of her benefits in order to put this lady under increased levels of stress; the hope was that this would push her towards suicide – or simply kill her off by boosting the level of her illness.

Govt Newspeak

Here’s a shocking fact. Around 70,000 children go to school hungry in a city dripping with the world’s mostly unearned, undeserved, under-taxed obscene wealth. One in four parents in London worry about being able to feed their children.

Almost a fifth of families in the capital choose between heating their homes or feeding their children, according to the latest research by YouGov, with one in seven families relying on charities and food banks. Even if their children aren’t going hungry, a third of parents feel they can’t afford the healthier food they know they should have. Food charity the Felix Project says, “Hungry children are held back in their development – they don’t do as well at…

Sensible logic from Poppy, but do Governments do logic let alone sensible.

I am so happy.

Saturday was a good news day for me.

After several weeks of waiting, I finally received the two brown envelopes through the letterbox which told me how I’d done with my enforced PIP (Personal Independence Payment) application and my ESA (Employment Support Allowance) reassessment and I was successful for both Benefits.

And, further to that, a very good family friend also received her brown envelope for PIP on Sarurday as well and she’s been successful as too. Virtual High Fives all over our social media pages let me tell you – we were delerious. We both got to sleep properly for the first time in quite a while that night and we can now both breathe freely once more because we know that our finances are guaranteed for at least the next few years at any rate.

Brilliant!

But, there is something we both want to…

This current Tory Government and probably the previous Tory Governments and New Labour are promoting Government euthanasia. By this I mean they are and were creating policies that remove benefits from persons with disabilities so that they cannot survive. Therefore they are creating situations where their death is almost inevitable. In doing so they are reducing those on benefits because on death the benefits cease, if not before due the benefits for their existence being wrongly withdrawn.

Euthanasia by Government policies.

Same Difference

Scope, the charity for disabled people, tweeted an interesting number when the general election was announced. There are, it said, 13 million disabled people in Britain. Some 89 per cent have said they will vote. 

The reason that number is worth paying attention to is that if the 89 per cent are true to their word, and if they use their franchise to hold the Government to account for its brutal treatment of disabled people, it might just spell trouble for Theresa May’s dreams of a three-figure majority. 

Now, let me make one thing clear at the outset. I’m not about to say who you should vote for. Journalists too often do that. I would simply invite you to consider the Government’s record when it comes to disability.

If I were to take on the role of prosecuting ministers over that, I would struggle to find somewhere to start. So long would…
