You can probably tell from the headline that This Writer is a little disappointed in the Labour leader.

Jeremy Corbyn told Aneurin Bevan Day celebrants in Tredegar there was “mounting evidence” that Tory austerity has been killing people.

He said: “There is clear and mounting evidence that austerity and inequality are killing people.

“For years people were living longer and life expectancy was increasing. That has now ground to a halt and in some parts of the country life expectancy is falling. This is unprecedented.”

Mounting evidence? We’re eight years into Tory austerity and the evidence is all around us!

We know that Tory changes to benefit eligibility have killed thousands because This Site forced the government to admit it after a two-year Freedom of Information battle.

We know that Tory changes to health and social care have killed more than 120,000 people because, again, the Conservative government has admitted it.

We don’t need more proof that Tory austerity is lowering life expectancy.

We do need a Labour government that will launch an investigation into the number of avoidable deaths that were caused by Tory policies – immediately upon taking office.

We need a government that will seize all relevant papers from all relevant goverment departments immediately, and that will follow all evidence trails without fear or favour, no matter where they lead.

The dead demand it.

Corbyn’s words are not strong enough.

He needs to man up and take the Tories to task over the mass deaths they have caused.
