“The Welfare System in the UK is pretty much like the NHS: The envy of the world but in need of some reforms.” FoxWisdom
Not many people will disagree with the statement above. What people disagree with is the systematic cut-backs both services are receiving. You see, our ruling classes find it acceptable to target the poor, the ill, the elderly and the vulnerable who without the pittance they receive from the state are now being victimised, labelled “scroungers” and thrown into further poverty and despair.
Our current PM and it`s cronies say it`s the “UK`s moral duty” to spend £11bn in foreign aid, while children are going hungry in the UK! They (The Gov) wasted a ludicrous amount of OUR money on Trident (NUCLEAR WEAPONS), while our elderly die of hypothermia because they can`t afford to pay for central heating. They (The Gov) are revelling in the thought of cutting benefits, claiming to be saving the state money in this time of austerity. Lies. What they really hope for is for us, the plebs, to become destitute and with any luck die. Yes, I do believe this government is pushing people to take their own lives. Desperate parents having to accept charity from food banks to feed their children. This is UK (EUROPE) in the year 2012-2013, not Africa. It`s a total disgrace!
Sorry for ranting. It was not the aim of this blog to go off on one about the government. What I wanted was to give you an idea how bad things are before coming to what was the actual aim of this blog: to pay my respect to those who have died as a direct or indirect result of “work capability assessment” carried out on behalf of the UK Government by Atos Healthcare and subsequent benefit cuts. I will do that on a separate blog: In Memoriam
I would like to end this blog asking you to sign and share the following petitions:
