Vox Political‘s friend Jim Moore is asking for people across the UK to stop and observe two minutes’ silence at 11am today (December 3), as a mark of respect for the people who have died as a result of the welfare ‘reforms’ administered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Atos and any other organisation involved in what he described as “this set of senseless deaths”.

Citizens of the UK have been paying their respects to the long-term sick and disabled people who have lost their lives while going through the DWP/Atos benefits process since 2012, when it was first revealed that 10,600 had lost their lives between January and November 2011.

Since then, the DWP has refused to provide any information on subsequent deaths, in spite of several high-profile Freedom of Information requests.

Please take the time to show your own respect – not only for the known deceased, but also for (it is feared) the many thousands whose deaths are, as yet, unknown to the public.

    Why oh why is this horrendous situation and many others not aired at Prime Minister’s Questiontime?? Apart from the fact that any questions asked are never answered, that you wouldn’t be able to hear the answer over the harrumphing and noise of backslapping, etc……seem to have answered my own query!
    Would encourage anyone who can to watch PMQ’s each Wednesday….either that or go to the zoo and watch a monkey s**t fight as they bear a striking resemblance each to the other.

    my sincerest sympathies to all of the bereaved families at this time

    I found some very moving music that i found helpful today while looking over the many hundreds of the sick and disabled that have died in going through welfare reform
    Music from Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal.
