The Scandal of DWP Silence

We know from  the official DWP report that between January & November 2011 10,600 disabled people either in receipt of or awaiting benefits died.

Since then the DWP have, despite numerous requests refused to release further updates; we can only speculate their reason why, as we can only surmise just how many more disabled people have since lost their lives?

It is well documented how the ‘Scrounger‘ rhetoric have adversely affected disabled people  and those who are chronically ill, and even Esther McVey – Minister of State for DWP stated she “would not disagree” when it was put to her in October 2013 that “ hundreds or even thousands of people who had died sooner than they should have done, or had a much lower quality of life over their last few weeks or months because of their experience of the WCA.”.

From this we believe it is safe to presume there has been an increase in the number of annual deaths of disabled people in 2012 & 2013; given the loss of life in 2011 was 10,600, even a 2% increase per annum would result in  12,720 in 2012 and a startling 15,264 in 2013. That would give a overall figure of 38,564 deaths over the 3 years the Coalition has been in Government.

Is this shocking statistic what the DWP don’t want us to know?

The fat cats of hubris

The 1% Elite would HATE this – Truth Will Out #ToryGreed

juxtaposed

The self ‘wealth creators’ will eat up the world
As they ‘help’ make each crisis much worse
They proclaim they are vital
For all our survival
Forgetting their cause is our curse

The fat cats of hubris are stealing a march
On a twisted opinion of worth
For the seedy old bleeders
Think we’re here to feed them
Convinced that their needs should come first

The arrogant greedies want us to believe
That they own all the rights to our shirts
Yes, the cretins are betting
That we’ll keep on letting
Them bank on this serfdom to work

The cheaters and fleecers and stealers of peace
Have sanity, rendered inert
If we don’t hurry up
And rise up from the muck
Then the meek shall inherit the dirt.
