Tory Cuts KILL – because they’re psychologically disturbed? – jaynelinney

David Cameron: Does this man look like a sociopath to you?

David Cameron: Does this man look like a sociopath to you?

Jayne Linney tells us: Yesterday’s news was full of the latest findings from Institute for Fiscal Studies demonstrating the ConDems’ changes to the Tax and Benefits system has cost households £1,127 a year on average, and even the Mail concedes this means “poor families have lost the most as a percentage of their income“; and yet despite this, the Government still maintained “UK income inequality is now lower than when this Government came into office“.

I doubt anyone will be remotely surprised at the Coalition disputing the data, this is another example of how this unelected Government has persistently and systematically Lied to the people.

Lucy Mangan in Today’s Guardian writes maybe the best answer I’ve read in the national media – “If you don’t understand how people fall into poverty, you’re probably a sociopath“.

This is something many of us on social media have said on countless occasions, and it certainly seems to apply to Cameron, IDS and Co, but what does this mean in reality? A Sociopath is listed in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), as an Antisocial Personality Disorder, with a “propensity for violence, a remorseless mind, indifference to others’ rights and not caring about ethical behaviour or laws”.

This suggests the cabinet at the very least is led by people who have a recognised psychiatric disorder.

    Don’t like that pic of Cameron.. he looks like something out of a blood and guts movie.

    Anyhow, I feel its more about their own failings and denial in their personal life.
    Cameron and Co act like they are the victims and made sure all “hardworking tax paying people” were victims to.

    Anyone under that radar is the bad guy and needs to be punished, as they are the enemy.

    Sounds like old fashioned fear to me.

    Bullies always go round in big gangs terrorizing the less fortunate.
    Get them on their own, and they are nothing.

    Sociopath: a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.

    Sounds about right to me.

    The front bench ar without doubt sociopathic personality disorders. Just look at how easily they lie and look at how angry they get when questioned or thwarted (when they are at their most dangerous) – Cameron whenever he get a rough time at PMQs is a good example… Jeffrey Archole is another one but I think he has more than one disorder, he’s certainly a narcissist, which I think Tony Blair was, too. Narcissists and sociopaths seem to be very common amongst politicians and businessmen which in and of itself needn’t be too bad but they push others to be as bad as them. They are ones competing the hardest and make the rest of us compete on that territory, this leads to where we are now – dog eat dog capitalism and zero empathy in politics and business.

    I very much doubt that there’s any question about it. The author of ‘The Psychopath Test’ made it very clear that the qualities that typify psychopaths will also make them leaders of industry and in politics. And Cameron, IDS and Gidiot are three of the most psycho of the lot.

    Oh yes, and anyone remember what John Major called the gang of Right-wing Tories that included John Redwood? Apart from ‘B*stards’, he called them, according to Private Eye, ‘Ward 8 from Broadmoor’.

    Certainly describes this bunch.

  7. Mark Hunter

    noun, Psychiatry.
    1.
    a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.

    Think it’s more about idealogical zeal combined with a political ruthlessness. They don’t care about the poorer sections of society as on the whole this section of society do not vote for them (pensioners being an exception. If they shrink the state and reduce welfare they are being the ultimate Tories. Also worth noting many of the electorate will vote for this.
