I just saw this and had to share it with you:

For those who have trouble reading image files:

Everyone’s talking about terrorism and which party will defend our national security this week. For obvious reasons.

Here’s the thing: I’m not terrified of terrorists at all. What I am terrified of, is Tories.

So far in 2017, just over 30 people have been killed by terrorists in Britain. It’s 30-odd people too many of course, but the number is reasonably small compared to this next figure.

In 2015, 30,000 people were killed by austerity (Oxford University, 2017). That’s not the total number who’ve died since the Conservatives came to power; that’s just for one year: 2015.

That’s a thousand times as many deaths.

You are far more likely to be killed by cuts to health and social care than you are by terrorists. It’s this government you should be terrified of.

Over the next five years, it could be someone you love who dies because they couldn’t get their medical treatment in time. It could even be you.

Remember this isn’t some dodgy thinktank or an unreliable blogger who did this research: It was Oxford University.

Enough said?
