Tories Directly Responsible For 150 Deaths - And Counting.
Ian Duncan Smith's pogrom against the weakest and most vulnerable in our society has, as far as he's concerned, begun to pay dividends. This cabinet minister, who has the sheer brass neck to describe himself as a Christian, is directly responsible for the deaths of 150 people so far. This body count is made up of both people who have killed themselves rather than face yet more deprevation and those who have died from "natural causes" such as heart attacks brought on by stress. It is the Tory equivalent of "the final solution," a deliberate and cynical attempt to rid the country of those the Tories consider to be useless. It includes both those born with disabilities and those who develop them later in life. In other words it can and might well happen to you or me. Meanwhile ATOS, the company appointed by IDS to do his dirty work for him, have been challenged successfully no less than 67% of the time with an attendant legal bill of £50 million. As a policy IDS's pogrom is both ethically indefensible and expensive and, in a civilized nation, would be deemed a crime against humanity. We are all standing aside while the state effectively commits murder. Toryism dolendum est!
