This short film tells the shocking facts about Conservative sickness benefit policy



How appropriate that Disabled People Against Cuts has released a new film on YouTube, raising awareness of the thousands of avoidable deaths that have happened as a result of Conservative-led ‘welfare reform’.

The Tories are about to enter another round of infighting over a plan to reinstate a £30-per-week cut to Employment Support Allowance, after it was blocked by the House of Lords.

Backbenchers say it will further impoverish thousands of people with illnesses as serious as cancer, even though people like George Osborne, David Cameron and Iain Duncan Smith say it is aimed at those who are capable of work-related activity.

In fact, it is likely to push thousands more people to suicide. The film explains why.

    I am not an evil being but I truly hope IDS contracts some terrible disease that sees him off slowly. How can this thing call himself a christian.

    As the video said, the tip of a Titanic-sized iceberg. Sadly, this will not be broadcast on the BBC or its ilk since they are far more interested in Cameron’s rediculous claims to have sorted out the EU all by himself.

    Remake the video with the music of Goreckis Symphony of Sorrowful song. inspired by an etching inscribed on a wall by an I8 year old girl in a Gestapo jail.
    Mamma do not cry
    Immaculate queen of heaven
    Support me always.

    Like then and now innocent people are being persecuted and murdered because of a sick and twisted ideology. Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

      What a beautiful artistry the words have and what sad and hopeless sympathy they evoke. I wish I knew what I should do with regards the quote attributed to Edmund Burke, I keep writing to my MP, to various government ministers, signing petitions, but because I’m not very mobile I can’t go on marches. So what to do?

    Let us all hope that the noose is tightening around his neck and around the necks of all those who work within the DWP who were ‘only following orders’.

    Nazis killed thousands of people and we call it a holocaust. We cannot standby just playing videos and living in hope that someone will come along and save us we must use the power within us all and vote these twisted evil Tories out of power now.

    I have said it before and I say it again… read “The Meaning of Hitler” by Sebastian Huffner, to understand the background to the attitudes and actions of Hitler… and be very worried by the comparison with the attitudes and actions of their Con Gov.

    Pass it on…

    The telling bit of this is IDS was warned in advance, of the consequences of rolling out the WCA and ESA which was already causing problems to existing IB claimants. He was not bothered. When he’s told folks are suffereing and dying and committing suicide I fully believe that it was part of the plan. We have the Nudge unit to advise on likely outcomes of policy. There are no longer any surprises as to the effects policy will have emotionally and psychologically. This is calculated before hand. Why else spend money on the service? This is govt ideology and is the ideology the country voted for. Kinda sad hey?

      How I agree with all these people. The trouble is the so called caring conservatives are all millionaires and haven’t got a care in the world. They are more interested in themselves and have no thought for the poor and sick.Shame on them they should be given a taste of their own medicine,a pity we cannot do anything to them, how about giving them all the sack.
