Video: Victim’s sister: The DWP know they are killing people – Telegraph

Last Updated: August 27, 2015By

This supports what This Blog has been suggesting for the past few days – that to understand the cause of incapacity benefit-related deaths we need to check for major changes that would have affected the deceased during their last days and weeks.

Cathie Wood whose brother Mark died four months after being found ‘fit to work’, said: “The DWP know they are killing people.”

“There are some prices to be paid for these austerity cuts and it’s important we know what those prices are and they are individual people who have died.”

Ms Wood believes that it was her brother’s benefits being stopped which caused his eating disorder and food phobia to suddenly worsen in the months before his death.

“Why would he go from being underweight and not in great shape to dying … during that period? It’s because he gradually realised [in] April, May [and] June [that] he was in trouble and had no money.”

    And to think what the people who actually caused this excuse for austerity, the financial elites, are siting in London restaurants, eating meals that would cost more than a week’s ESA, washing it down with bottles of wine that would feed a low income family for a month…

    I honestly ask, as my interest in politics only goes back 25 years or so; has there ever been a more repellent, deviant, divisive and morally repulsive government here since the days of slavery?

    That’s the look like picture of me mike how tragic. My wife fully supports his sisters views as my wife as a fully skilled carer has to work full time instead of looking after me

    My wife has to phone me every couple of hours as that is the arrangement and pops home for lunch as she is only 5 minutes walk away

    But for poor mark and now his family the nightmare still continues. The main reason i look like mark is because of the DWP as they continue to give me and my family stress over many years and having a stomach condition which prevents me from eating or drinking properly their ongoing stress and persecution of me does not help in my one of many long term condition’s

    Hopefully the government will be prosecuted at some point over these ongoing deaths so that i can be called as a independent witness to speak of my dealings with the DWP over the past 35 years

    Euthanasia, by any other name.

    In a word ‘No’. In my lifetime, (61 years), there has never been such a cruel, despicable, corrupt government. It feels as though the mafia is running our country.

    What is beyond me is some of these despicable ministers have wives and families, do their wives stand behind them and support what their husbands are doing to sick people.

    If so it appears they must have hearts of stone, not human, Ester Mcvile a perfect example.

    The death figure’s ‘Breaking News’ have been released with a predictable muted response by the BBC, who seem more interested in reporting foreign affairs, rather than home truths; Still, it is a milestone in potential justice. 90 people a week! perhaps more, yes, a shameful illustration of IDS’s collateral damage to further his ideology. The families of those deceased have my full and sincere sympathy, who must no doubt be distressed at this revelation. It may only take one of these grieving relatives to persuade a causal effect to their relatives death to Welfare Reform. Or, more accurately, the potential liability of ATOS et al. A Coroners verdict of attributable cause will be the trigger that will enable justice to take it’s course, and damn those responsible for their abhorrent actions.

    This government has been the most anti disabled since the nazi’s came to power in germany, the latest attack is the reports that people are spending their PIP on video games and televisions, as if they are wasting their money on luxuries, when the truth is if they are like me stuck at home all day on their own, these are their only links with the outside world, and essential to their mental well being, but don;t ever expect that aspect to be highlighted by todays sensation loving media.

      This will be anecdotal evidence, which does not constitute proof. If government sources are making these claims, throw their own excuses back at them.

    Showing the pure evil of this party that is in power right now, they know they are killing people but don’t care at all, they will continue killing people because they enjoy it and justify it by saying they’re getting the benefit figures down and it’s good for the country, killing ill and innocent people is good for the country, cutting everyday people’s money while they and their ilk, like the bankers, p*** it away like there’s no tomorrow, the Nazis have nothing on this shower of ****!
