When is a Valentine not a Valentine?

When it’s written by the dopey DWP, that’s when.

Look at the state of what the Work and Pensions press office sent out yesterday:

How threatening is that?

Very threatening, as a horde of respondents have made clear.

So – to brighten your Valentine’s Day and darken that of the DWP, including and especially its Secretary of State – here are a few of those responses.

    The DWP sends a “Valentine”to claimants which has anything but a good wish and certainly no love in it! The heartless treatment of the disabled and PIP assessments which are designed to take away support instead of giving it! The Tories are seeking to take away free school meals from kids whose parents are on Universal Credit. These are welfare policies of a Tory government who have not a shred of compassion or concern for the vulnerable or poorest families.

      Some of them might be people like me who press the ‘like’ button so we have easy access to the tweet.

    Obviously a product of Fester McVile’s toxic mind. Hopefully if JC gains power he’ll carry out the threat he made quite a while ago to split the DWP back into to Ministries of Pensions and Employment.

    I don’t do Twitter and don’t really understand how it works. Who was this sent to or is it just a general tweet on their own page? Not that it makes it any less disgusting whatever the method.

    Benefit fraudsters? The worst offenders? Yes the wealthy, privileged, pontificating elite who wield the sticks and carrots! Not just ‘offshore’ either! Onshore as well! Don’t forget the ‘duck-house’ and a myriad other scheming little thefts like ‘underpants’ and breakfast!
