Uncannily accurate: The Conservative government’s genuine policy towards PIP claimants may as well be as it appears in this cartoon from 2017.

 

It would be easy to forget – during the general election campaign – that Conservative government policies have contributed to the deaths of thousands of disabled people.

According to the Department for Work and Pensions, they died after the government rejected their claims for Personal Independence Payment – or before the government could be bothered to make a decision.

I refer to official figures released on February 1 this year.

They state that 7,990 claimants, who died within six months of their claim being registered, had had their claims rejected. Can anybody doubt that these decisions were wrong?

And 5,219 claimants died after registering but before the government made a decision on their claim.

Now, I’m not saying that all 13,119 of them would be still alive if their claims had not been handled under Conservative government rules.

But I’m absolutely sure the Tories did not treat them reasonably and many of them may still have been alive today, under a different system.

The newspapers – and This Site – have been full of stories demonstrating the ways in which the Tories have mistreated vulnerable people.

It is clear that anybody voting for the Conservatives supports the untimely deaths of people with disabilities.

But now the people have a chance to put and end to the cruelty.

All we have to do is vote for a Labour government.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
