This is going to seem harsh, but somebody has to ask the obvious question:

Who will receive the bonus payment for clearing David Brown off the benefit books?

Will it be the staff member who he claimed “belittled” him, shortly before he took his own life?

If so, there is no justice.

Instead of taking a bonus, she should be facing a judge on a charge of corporate manslaughter.

A football fan who desperately wanted a job took his own life after being ‘belittled’ by Job Centre staff, his inquest heard.

David Brown, 18, seeking a welder’s apprenticeship, was under ‘immense pressure’ from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), the coroner was told.

The Middlesbrough supporter, from Eston, North Yorkshire, was allegedly told he would have his benefits stopped unless he did more to find employment, reports Gazette Live.

Shortly before he killed himself, David told his mother: “The way the Jobcentre treat people, it is no surprise people commit suicide.”
