Is it possible that this Government and their friends want to create a new work force that will work for next to nothing, like robots with out rights?
Perhaps you might find this a little far fetched. You may be right to do so or you might be horribly mistaken. I am not sure but we are seeing the poor and vulnerable disenfranchised by the posh boys who have never gone with out a square meal or been forced to work for the minimum wage in a culture that puts the interests of the rich above all things,
This government is victimising the poor and vulnerable in the name of saving money while their banker mates are still not lending the money they were given to help small business and they continue to worm their way out of any accountability for the mess they helped to make.
I don’t need to list the endless examples of wasting our money by the ConDems that we see everyday.
We are all beginning to feel the effects of the decimation of public services.
Social work has become reduced to the point that the streets are slowly filling up with people who should be receiving care. There is little on offer for those who need it most.
Hospitals are often understaffed and dirty. Pastoral care takes a back seat while the paperwork mountain increases for every one.
I have heard terrible stories from genuinely sick people who live in terror that their benefits might be removed and there have been several suicides when this has happened. ATOS have been asking people what television programs they watch to help establish their intelligence level or to see if they could sit in front of screen and serve some function that could qualify them as employable.
June Mitchell applied for sickness benefit. When examined by ATOS, she complained of breathlessness and feeling tired. She was scored zero points and found fit for work. She went back to her GP, was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and died shortly afterwards.
A nurse in Scotland was so shocked at ATOS’s behaviour that she blew the whistle on them. She said that people with serious lung diseases were found fit for work as long as they could sit in front of a computer, and that parents who attend with their children are automatically found fit for work.
If the Tories get their way, within five years the UK will have a smaller public sector than any major developed nation.
