Vox Political in the INTERnational press over DWP deaths petition – part three


This is from Russia Today. The comments by Anita Bellows are interesting:

RT spoke to disability rights campaigner Anita Bellows.

Asked to estimate the death toll, Bellows said: “We have no ways of knowing how many people have died.

For this, we would need to know how many people have died after being found fit work (6 weeks or 2 months afterwards for example).

But because people who have been found fit for work, but are too sick to work and claim JSA [Job Seekers Allowance] are not part anymore of the benefit system, there is no way to know.

Bellow described the day-to-day impact of cuts on disabled people.

The deaths and suicides are just the tip of the iceberg. What the welfare reform has done is to tip over the edge people who were just managing, in very precarious conditions.

    AS i have told you mike all of the deaths that have been in the press i have always foreword on to the UN and the Facebook page remember the dead

    i had been forwarding the deaths to the UN i may add well before the facebook page remember the dead launched

    i am confident that in any trial i can give a judgement of my undertaking to any high court without any notes as i have been consistent with what i have undertaking and just regret that i myself not being fit could not have done more to save the lives of others

    Had i been fit and at work in the UN and according to the UN i would have been able to have knock this nonsense of persecution and death on the head from the onset of the sick and disabled

    My wife has said that i am very outspoken and i have always thought that to be a good sign. However, those in power that play the deaf and dumb card and just leave others to just rot and die have always shocked me
