Pippa Hammond injured her eye after having a fit at the top of the stairs [Image: Pippa Hammond].

This is today’s reminder that the Tories are homicidal, and the only benefits they recognise are benefits they can claim for themselves.

Pippa Hammond’s epilepsy is so severe that someone has to wait in the room with her every time she has a shower, goes to the toilet or even blow dries her hair.

Her fits are unpredictable and can begin at any time, with scars up the backs of her legs illustrating this from when she dropped the hairdryer during a seizure.

It burst into flames on the carpet as she lay on the ground, spreading flames across the floor and setting her on fire.

She can’t work or drive, and is totally dependent on her friends and family for her daily life.

Despite this, she has been denied any disability benefit under the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) scheme, with her application scored zero in every category.
