Tory Scroungers Desperately Point The Finger.

Ian Duncan Smith and Chris Grayling, looking like two evil hard-bolied eggs in a double egg cup, have renewed their attack on the disabled with even greater vigour. In the "Guardian" Grayling has written a piece that attempts to make his personal crusade against lazy and feckless people without legs look reasonable. Taking a woman with depression he claims to have met, he poses the question "Wouldn't she be better off working?" The answer is, of course, that I and the vast majority of "Guardian" readers would not have the slightest idea. Perhaps Grayling should ask her doctor. One thing is for certain and that is that IDS and Grayling have made sure that ATOS is a doctor-free zone and that their "tick-box" approach to assessment is as unfair as it can conceivably be. Meanwhile the parents of disabled children have been receiving letters from the DWP warning them that if they spend their children's allowances on themselves then the children may be taken off them. The assumption is clear - the DWP believe that all parents of disabled children are lazy feckless scroungers taking advantage of their children's disabilities to buy cigarettes, alcohol, and satellite TV for themselves. All of this is bad enough but is made even worse by the behaviour of Chris Grayling who has plundered the public purse through his expenses claims to purchase four properties in London. He has even managed to manipulate the expenses system to purchase two different flats in London as his "second home" at the same time. And this despite the fact that his constituency home is less than 17 miles from the House of Commons. When it comes to scrounging Chris Grayling is the master and for him to point the finger at disabled people is hypocrisy of the worst kind. He is the true face of the nasty Tory party that David Cameron has been at such pains to deny.
