Sign The Petition For An Inquiry Into The Benefit Sanctions That Killed David Clapson

MAIN--David-ClapsonThe family of David Clapson – the former soldier who recently died after his benefits were stopped as punishment for missing a meeting at the Jobcentre – have launched a petition calling for an inquiry into benefit sanctions.

In his sister’s own words:

“My brother, David Clapson, a diabetic ex-soldier, died starving and destitute because he was penalised by the Job Centre for missing a meeting.

“David had his £71.70 weekly allowance stopped meaning that he couldn’t afford food or electricity. He was penniless, starving and alone. His electricity card was out of credit meaning the fridge where he should have kept his diabetes insulin chilled was not working. Three weeks after his benefits were stopped he died from diabetic ­ketoacidosis – caused by not taking his insulin. 

“David wasn’t a “scrounger”. He had worked for 29 years; 5 years in the Army – including two years in Northern Ireland in the 1970s, during the height of the troubles – 16 years with British Telecom, eight years with various other companies, and in recent years was a carer for our sick mother. When mum went into a home, David turned to the state for help, receiving benefits while he looked for work and taking unpaid work placements.

“When he died he had just £3.44 to his name, six tea bags, a tin of soup and an out-of-date can of sardines. A coroner also found he had no food in his stomach.

“People turn to the state when they are in need – that is what the system is for – a safety net for hard working people like my brother when they need a bit of support. That £71.70 a week was his lifeline. To withhold it from him for missing one meeting is cruel. And the heartbreaking thing is that he was really trying. CVs for job applications were found near David’s body. He had been on work placements, passed his fork lift truck certificate and had been on a computer training course.”

    Remember this when we see Cameron at the Cenotaph, devaluing the poppy symbol at the next Remembrance Day. It takes a particularly cruel and callous individual to spout empty rhetoric one day, and spit into the faces of those who’ve risked their lives the next.

      “WE ARE ALL AWARE THAT THE EBOLA VIRUS HAS TAKEN THE LIVES OF OVER 700 PEOPLE IN WEST AFRICA, BUT HOW MANY LIVES HAVE BEEN TAKEN BY THE DEPARTMENT OF WORKS AND PENSIONS IN THE UK?”

      WITHHOLDING THIS INFORMATION FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD IS NO MEAN FEAT.

      THE CONSPIRACY TO HIDE THE SHOCKING REVELATIONS OF THE WAR AGAINST THE POOR AND DISABLED WILL MAKE THE EBOLA DEATH COUNT FIZZLE INTO OBSCURITY WHEN THE ACTUAL FIGURES FALL INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

      MEANWHILE, THE JUDICIARY WILL BE TRYING TO DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM THE HORRORS THAT THEY HELPED PERPETRATE…………………

  4. david you have woken us up! it tells the story of the vast majority of working class people who’s daily struggle is to keep founded in our vitals of life, in a startling flash of our fragility ….

    People not be forced to take their life, it would be said there is help out there, but some people dont like begging, that what is involved, I remember 40 odd years ago my then husband walked out and left myself and 3 young children he never left any money so had to approach dss as called then, I had to really beg, the humiliation I felt was geplorable, shows how bad I felt after all these years I can remember the ordeal that they put me through.
    Never in a million years would it be happening at this time with all the revenue they have, so please stop this cruelty, nobody need to do that, but the lack of compassion treated like scroungers, people are not that way, if any are is would be a small slice of the population

  6. This is the face of the UK! Open your mouth people, speak out – the next one dying of starvation/cold/cruelty could well be YOU!

      I’m well aware of that, having not eaten a proper meal all week, and I’m not even Sanctioned.

      • “ONLY 153,800 ERRORS, AND OF THOSE, HOW MANY ARE PUSHING UP DAISIES, MR. SMITH?”

        Between 2010 and 2013, the government, which has the final say on the assessments, reversed 158,300 fit-for-work approvals by Atos.

        In one case, a dying man with a brain tumour and serious heart condition was deemed fit to work by Atos.

        In another, a vulnerable man with Asperger’s Syndrome, a phobia for food and several other health issues was stripped of his ESA after being judged fit to work by Atos. He later died of malnourishment.

      Disability activists spread ‘Atos kills’ message at Commonwealth Games
      Jul
      2014
      Thursday 31st
      posted by Rory MacKinnon in Britain

      HUNDREDS of Commonwealth Games tourists were surprised in Glasgow’s George Square yesterday as disability activists cried shame on sponsor Atos.

      A clutch of demonstrators backing campaign group Glasgow Against Atos held banners and placards aloft — reading “ATOS KILLS” — in front of sports fans who were viewing the Glasgow 2014 sculpture and queueing for Games merchandise.

      IT giant Atos has sought to boost its public profile by sponsoring database software for international sporting events, but campaigners have fought to expose its role in deadly cuts to disability benefits under a lucrative contract running “work capability assessments” for the Department of Work and Pensions.

      Demonstrator Ronnie Swinton told the Morning Star he had come all the way from Dundee to voice his anger at Atos.

      Mr Swinton said he had spent seven weeks “without any money,” depending on friends as he fought to appeal a decision that he was fit for work despite chronic depression.

      Mr Swinton said he had eventually won his appeal but the stress had taken a further toll on his health.

      “I was afraid of losing my flat.

      “It would’ve given me a mental illness if I didn’t have one in the first place,” he said.

      And a government proposal to simply switch contractors won’t solve the problems either, he added: “The whole system’s got to be stopped before any more people die.”

      Several suicides have been linked to benefits being denied following Atos’ assessments, including “Miss DE” in 2011, whose identity remains protected, and blind agoraphobe Tim Salter, who took his own life in September last year.

      The department says it does not record mortality rates for those deemed “fit for work.”

      But figures released in 2012 suggested that 2,200 people had died before Atos had even completed their assessment — and 1,300 had died within six weeks of being shunted into “work related activity.”

      In 2012 Paralympic athletes hid their branded lanyards at London’s Olympic opening ceremony, while Sport Disability Scotland told MSPs in April of athletes who could no longer afford to continue their sporting careers after losing out to an assessment.

      Games organisers have repeatedly said they remain “very proud” of Atos’ involvement, while Atos maintains that its assessments merely offer information to DWP officials who decide on access to benefits.

  11. Funny how paying National insurance/income Tax is compulsory yet when the benefits are needed it is treated as a privelidge.

    A SICKENING ORGY OF GREED WHILE THE REMAINDER SIT AT THE FOOT OF THE TABLE COLLECTING CRUMBS……..

    THIS MAN WAS WILLING TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE WHILE THE FACELESS BASTARDS IN GOVERNMENT INSTRUCTED A PCS WORKER TO TAKE IT.

    WE ARE NOT GOVERNED BY PEOPLE BUT A TOFFEE NOSED ELITE WHO HAVE NO IDEA OF THE HORROR OF THEIR VILE REFORMS.

  13. We are fucked under conservative rule, just get used to it…..till voting time! These efforts will not change shit.

    • We’re fucked under Labour rule too. When are people going to realise that it doesn’t matter a jot who ‘we’ vote into government, it will immediately become our enemy, an reflect the interests of the powerful, wealthy elite. Abolish government and let’s do the job ourselves.

  14. Rosemarie Harris

    Where were the charity’s that are always collecting for ‘Heroes’ or do you have to pay to be a member.We have loads of charity’s that could have helped why was he not known to a army charity? don’t they have records of ex service people ?
    What a waste of a life David had paid into our social security system ..why was he left to starve?

    • Sadly it is people who have been in the armed forces who often fall through the cracks. Many ex military people become homeless. Perhaps it’s something that should be highlighted to young, impressionable people considering joining the armed forces? Perhaps then they would realise that far from defending their own, and our interests, they are merely serving the interests of the ruling elites around the world.

      This man’s death isn’t tragic because he is an ex soldier, it’s tragic because he is a human being.

  15. I’ve signed and shared. I am ashamed to be a citizen of the UK, as I, as well as millions of us, have let this unelected coalition do whatever they like. Will people finally see what is going on? Will people actually do something now?
    I doubt it :(
    I just hope that people get off their arses next May and vote these bastards out, once and for all. To do that I don’t mean by voting Ukip either!!

  16. Reblogged this on Jay's Journal and commented:
    Please, please share this petition far and wide – no-one deserves to die like this…

  17. Rosemarie Harris:
    This government is murdering everyone that does not provide income tax. However crippled you are.
    Get used to it and smell the beef :)

  18. Lets be honest, disabled people have had it in the UK.
    Doctor/specialists are not trusted to diagnose our pains, so we get nurses and people with less quotations to decide – whether we should die.

    • To be honest, I’m being treated by the head consultant so don’t write off the NHS – they are still providing a champion service despite the attempts of Camoron, Gidiot and Dunghill Shite. Let’s hope we get the scum out next May before they can do even more damage.

  19. quotations should have been qualifications.

  20. Can the government get email address and stuff from this site……….
    Yes. They can. We are rebels now against the worst gov in my history (52 years old – 25 diff jobs until 43).

  21. While waiting to see a advisor in the job centre today,I heard her say,if he doest jump when I say I will sanction him.she was laughing as she said it.what kind of people are they

    • at daz, wow that is realy vile,to think some staff are enjoying this sickness.

    • Once they have joined in (colluded) with the [allowed in law] terrorisation of fellow citizens the first few time(s) – and the first time in particular – they’re ‘in for a penny, in for a pound’ and might as well go all out trying to win easter eggs/shopping vouchers if they embrace the ‘concept’/system and join in. They have, by then, denied their humanity and stamped on their fellow human beings and to avoid becoming demoralised/filled with self-loathing it’s necessary to justify to themselves and to each other what they’re doing and why, & to start to become desensetized. (A form of self-protection). Being ‘at one remove’ & thinking of the people attending the jcp as ‘not us’ (not “people like me”) & the “Other” / ‘less than’, allows them to carry out acts perhaps not made explicit in their job description – or maybe the question “How would you feel…?” is asked at interview these days.

      Discussing what they plan to do – casually mentioning ‘sanctioning’ people in public – shows they’re confering an air of ‘normality’ on their actions/showing colleagues and themselves they’re enthusiastic about what’s (supposedly) a reasonable/virtuous part of their role. It’s hard to credit that these are people with desk jobs – on a mission to toe the line – whatever might be involved.

      The ‘S’ word is now a ‘normal/usual’, everyday shorthand – synonymous with cruelty. It’s entered the lexicon and is widely used in context and understood (at whatever level). The practice it doesn’t really describe is now common practice/an everyday occurrence – even though it stands for something we’d largely have been sure that as a society we’d have refused to allow, if asked even ten/15years ago.

      • s n
        that’s spot on..cultural normalization…”the book thief”…seen it have you?

        • Hi obd – only with my own eyes, unfortunately; I’ve not seen or heard the book thief. Not 100 percent always able to believe what I’m seeing @2014, theft-wise – certainly not what was seen/heard at jobcentre-minus over year and a half – and the same with Atos/wca.

          & t’werk pogram – they just tried to re-start our dysfunctional/abusive relationship via harrassing/trying to make (more) money by check-ups. (i didn’t sign the first form so would like to think they can’t claim any outcome $$s. Not sure if this is right or not as caught off-guard/signed a no. 2 form – it seemed less obviously dangerous at the time & wasn’t expecting a follow-up after the first form – having had a debate including quite serious attempts to ‘guilt-trip/’persuade’ me to sign up). Nosw they’ve come back to haunt & know have found a number to contact me on, despite not leaving any contact number, just a vague reference to where I was going. Not taking the hint, they lied on the phone to a colleague/didn’t say the name of their company – just something made-up/vaguely related maybe – after first making anonymous enquiries by phone asking did i work there … also made various calls to home – should not have given my number to them – but i did.

          Not managing to avoid their call is galling & just hoping they don’t manage to claim any [more] $$ from contacting me – stalker-like. Alll the wp did was provide feelings of dspondency/disillusion once a fortnight and attempt to raise ‘sanction doubts’ while displaying delusional magical thinking/massive ignorance. They patronise/demean anything/one that moves into their (narrow) field of vision and then expect that we should be grateful & reward them (further). They’re up to their necks in it with the jcp & in part at least responsible for this untimely, awful death.

          (WP/JCP/WCA people – happy to take home blood-money come payday …).

          • s n
            it’s a movie set in nazi germany at the time when they’re having book bonfires, people were being forced to worship the nazi’s…pol pot yr 0 stuff, wipe out the past, brainwashing etc etc which is why i mentioned it coz it rung true with your post…anyway great film imo…so they’re trying to get an outcome payment… stress….bastards…they got t’workplace….refuted/iua/ecap? methods grimy, me i’d not ‘em give an inch…harassing tykes… http://www.edinburghagainstpoverty.org.uk/

            • obd,
              they always threatened we’d be together for 2 years, “Even if you start work in that time …” – & would ‘follow me/phone workplace” – only with a.n.other explanation given than, “it’s about the money” … they definitely lied/went by a different company name when they rang, or I’d not have taken the call & it didn’t come through directly to me – almost managed to avoid them … they must have ferretted around a bit … they are persistent.

              one fifth of me wants to just go in there & complain but it’s not quite like that is it(!) – I also never want to be anywhere near there again. If I went for advice (probably won’t on this one) not sure it’d help to stop them claiming the cash – they’ve confirmed I’m at work six months on & can claim it’s all down to them – presumably – & I’m Dealing in Sanctions will pay up. The only glimmer of hope is they hoped to “see how things were going/get some information” – & the conversation didn’t last long enough for that.

              It’s always been a niggle that I spent a good while reiterating that wasn’t going to sign their indenture form and eventually got through to them that I really wouldn’t (!) but then signed a.n.other form (just for something innocuous – allegedly) straight afterwards – & this is what they do – wear us down/catch us off-guard etc. It was only due to having read so much on/from here I’d been expecting forms to refuse – but even before that, at the ‘induction’ they herded a group of us into a room and got (almost) everyone’s personal details straight away, “to pass to our ‘in-house’ people-with-job-contacts” – I think there were 2 of us who didn’t complete them – & even then there had to be a discussion – it was completely a deliberate ‘set-up.

              Just because I’d signed on in years past, more than once, i thought I understood the process this time round (!!) – & and gave the ‘nice’ woman at JCPminus my cv via email when asked – at 1st ‘advisor appointment’ although had never been asked this before, So thought, “This is new – but what harm can it do? & it is 2014″. Advisor was ‘nice’ for the first one or 2 appointments only & quite soon after tried to issue 1st sanction; when Universaljobsnatch came along, that was it – no more pretend ‘concern’ & the gloves came off – no more Mrs Nice Guy (wondering whether r43 has been).

              • s n
                yes it is their MO to bambozzle and let the sands of time takes it’s toll on everything esp fading memories…which is why record them and keep accurate records is the only way…they crush honest working class people who expect fair play, in this way…they persist in a time honoured unified mechanical way, ensured that most everything is stacked in their favour ie they have power over one’s vitals, and the slightest loss spells catastrophe for the impoverished…they have access to vast resources your access is minimal to say the least…social inclusion it is not!

                • ps best not to sign anything either there is somewhere a handy a4 guide to do’s and dont’s with the WP….we are so/too trusting, years of oppression me thinks…brow beaten into trusting blindly, we have to break that habit…

      • (Emily Watson AND Geoffrey Rush = definitely worth watching).

        The parallells between you know when in history and jcp/wp providers today are just too … running alongside one another like tramllines not to remark on – whatever some like to say about Godwin etc. & blah …

  22. kill some one with a bullet or a sanction its still fucking murder,,, what a waste of a mans life,,,,,

  23. Signed, and it’s on my Facebook timeline. Polite words fail me, just hope IDS and the rest of the Coalition scum get their comeuppance next May, then hopefully committals to The Hague.

    perhaps it’s time IDS was charged and put on trial in Nuremberg where his idol Himmler went before him. He never be a General Pinochet (Thatchers murdering darling) General Pinocchio perhaps.

  32. It is Important that people get out and Vote in 2015 because Burying
    the Head in the Sand only Helps the Tories .

    The more Votes against the Tories and the Liberal Democrats
    the Better

    It is Clear as Crystal what a Mess they have made of MisGoverning
    this Country

    Why do the Masses persist in Acting the Political Zombie ?

  33. Arbiet Macht Frei

    Ok let’s say you vote against the Tories and Lib dems. Who do you then vote for? Remember Labour brought in ESA and the benefit sanctions and indeed ATOS.

    So who are you proposing to vote for????

    • Yes it certainly was ‘Labour’ who brought in this viscious and inhumane disability denial factory!!
      Whilst suffering accute and cronic kidney disease and unimaginable severe pain, fever and sickness, and introvenous medication, stents, and drainage, whist desperately needing a kidney removed [but wanting and begging to die to relieve my suffering] – I was deemed ‘fit for work’ with ‘0’ points!! A fight that took nearly two years to ‘Win’! But NO Apology for the extra stress and suffering they caused me.
      Sent home alone – desperately weak after my second major surgery, and extra stress and trauma [from struggling to fight against this ‘Evil’ regime in my precarious state] – cold and hungry! Tony Blair NEVER replied to my letters!

  34. Arbiet Macht Frei

    I’m voting for another country wide riot…

  35. Class War might be a good choice – if you don’t have a candiadate in your area, why not consider standing? Get in touch with Ian Bone if you are thinking of standing. It will at least be a laugh, and maybe even a riot! And no-one could say afterwards that there was no one worth voting for. Even better to stand at a local council election though, cheaper and a better chance of getting in.

  36. Anyone – What law did the DM use to sanction all of my partners JSA portion of a joint claim, when I was the subject of that sanction.

    Everything I have read online suggests that they could only sanction my part of the claim.

    Thanks :-)

  37. Things were Not Perfect under Labour but have got Worse under the Tories

    Had Labour of got in Power in 1983 instead of Thatcher and the Tory Nazis
    Britain Britain would of had a Socialist Government and a Socialist State
    instead of the I Am All Right Jack Mentality of Neo Liberalism

    I Agree Labour should of been More Socialist and Anti Oppression
    but that is Poisonous Tory ” Free Market ” Influence for You

    I would Say Vote to Get the Con Dems Out as a Start and to Press For
    the Reversing of Public Spending Cuts the Restoration of the Welfare
    State and the Challenging of Neo Liberalism just like the Challenging of
    Neo Nazism

    People sticking their Heads in the Sand and just grumbling about it
    is what they Want watching the TV getting Drunk instead of
    Politically Involved

    Better Socialism than Slavery

    • I’m inclined to agree, as obnoxious as the thought is to me, that first we must lessen the evil being done, by voting Labour, and then make inroads from there.
      There are some trains of thought that state it’s Lynton Crosby’s work, to propagate the myth that all the Political Parties are the same or ineffectual, that with a lack of decent policy from the conservatives, the best way for them to win is to go on the offensive, rip the opposition apart with lies and rhetoric, ad hominum attacks flog the lie that they are all the same to dissuade folk from voting, instil ennui
      I dont want to imagine another 5 years under the Tory jackboot and as much as i despise what labour became under Blair, its the only fighting chance we have under the present system

    LIFE OF HUMAN BEINGS HAS REPLACED FOX HUNTING AS THE TOFFEE NOSED ELITES NUMBER ONE SPORT.
    WHY CHOOSE TO SEE A FOX RIPPED TO SHREDS IN A FEW MOMENTS WHEN YOU CAN WATCH A DISABLED SUFFER IN DESTITUTION WHILE STRUGGLING TO HANG ON TILL THE LAST BREATH?.

    THEY SAY EVIL HAS NO BOUNDARIES BUT THIS COALITION GOVERNMENT WENT OVER THAT BOUNDARY WHEN THEY CHOSE TO DO BATTLE WITH THOSE WHO WOULD GIVE THE LEAST RESISTANCE, THE DISABLED.

    WE MIGHT NOT BE A PRETTY SIGHT, NOT THE STUFF OF CATWALKS, BUT WE ARE NEVERTHELESS, HUMAN BEINGS, LIKE IT OR LUMP IT…………………………..

    AS FOR MY THIRTY TWO POUNDS PER WEEK THAT YOU HAVE PAID ME AND MY FAMILY FOR OVER 13 MONTHS, I WILL TRY AND SPEND IT WISELY TO MAKE SURE EVERY PENNY DOES NOT GO TO WASTE!

  40. A Truth and Retribution Commission Need’s to be Established so
    that Oppression Collaborators can be made to Account for their
    Collaboration with Misery Suffering and Oppression so that Truth
    Triumph’s over Tyranny

    Better the Red Flag and Socialism than Oppression and Slavery

  41. Nazi Collaborators and Nazi Lovers in Countries in Europe such
    as France were made to Account for their Treachery at the End of
    WW2 so it is only Reasonable that Oppression Collaborators and
    Oppression Lovers are made to Account For Acknowledge and
    Apologuise for the Misery and Suffering that their Selfishness
    Shallowness and Lack of Decency has Brought

  43. Penalising vulnerable people under false pretences because “there isn’t enough money” all the while allowing commercial banks to create 97% of the nation’s money supply electronically out of thin air when they make loans (only 3% is government/central bank created cash). Then bailing out the banks by hundreds of billions using more taxpayer debt when they over-extend themselves and bailing out the monetary system too by pouring hundreds of billions of Bank of England created electronic money (375 Bn so far) under quantitative easing. The QE money ended up stuck in the financial markets making the rich’s assets worth even more while average man/woman struggles with a crap low paid job or none at all, and an ever diminishing benefits safety net. The people who are running this are all ignorant (educated in neo-classical economics- a lot of which is utter rubbish) and fools!

  44. “HS2, THE NEW RAILWAY OF DEATH”

    FORGET THE OLD DEATH RAILWAY THAT RAN ON THE BURMA THAI SYSTEM AND CONCENTRATE ON THE LATEST CONTROVERSIAL MINDSET OF A GROUP OF HIGHLY PAID IDIOTS………………….

    THEY USED TO RECKON THAT FOR EVERY SLEEPER LAID, IT REPRESENTED THE REMOVAL OF A PERSONS LIFE………………..

    NOTHING HAS APPARENTLY CHANGED.

    WHILE FAMILIES SEEK TO FIND CRUMBS HURRIEDLY SWEPT OFF THE TABLECLOTH OF THE ASHES OF THE WELFARE STATE, DISABLED AND THE POOR ARE SENT TO EARLY GRAVES AND THE LEVEL OF RICH / POOR DISCONTENT REACHES FEVER PITCH, ONLY THE MENTALLY INSANE DARE DREAM THIS UP……………………….

    COUNTLESS BILLIONS SQUANDERED ON A ROAD TO NOWHERE?

    “HOW MANY LIVES DOES IT TAKE TAKE TO KNOCK A FEW MINUTES OFF A TRAIN JOURNEY?”

    “HOW MANY BENEFITS STOLEN FROM THOSE WHO ARE IN NEED, THE DISABLED AND POOR”

    THE ABUSE OF WEALTH AND POWER HAS REACHED A SICKENING CRESCENDO………

    OUR HALLS OF GOVERNMENT ARE FILLED, EVERY INCH, WITH THE INCREASING STENCH OF CORRUPTION.
    WHO IS REALLY REPRESENTING THE VIEWS OF THE ELECTORATE AND WHO IS REALLY REPRESENTING THE VIEWS OF THE SECRET HANDSHAKE, UNDER THE TABLE, BIG BROWN ENVELOPE CONSORTIUMS?.

    THEY ARE TAKING THE PISS, BIG TIME!

    ANOTHER RAIL NETWORK WILL NOT BRING PROSPERITY TO ANYONE UP NORTH, MOST TRANSPORT IS DONE BY ROAD………………………

    MY FAMILY AND I CANNOT HARDLY AFFORD TO GO ON THE EXISTING RAIL NETWORK, LET ALONE THE PROPOSED “GLITZY EXPRESS”

    THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO STAND TO GAIN FROM THIS DISGRACEFUL SHOW OF OPULENCE ARE THE ONES PULLING THE STRINGS, THE LOBBYISTS WHO RUN RINGS ROUND OUR PARLIAMENTARIANS GREED.

    AN INQUIRY SHOULD BE MADE IMMEDIATELY INTO WHO IS TO GAIN FROM THE CONTRACTS AND THE SLIMY LINKS THEY HAVE TO INFLUENTIAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEES.

    GRANTED THERE ARE A FEW ON THE BENCHES WHO PURPORT TO CHAMPION THE OLD SOCIALIST VIEWS, BUT THIS IS A REHEARSED RHETORIC TO KEEP THEM AFLOAT OF THE PUBLIC THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT.

    OUR GOVERNMENT IS NOTHING SHORT OF A GENTLEMENS CLUB OF SECRET HANDSHAKES TO ELEVATE PERSONAL FINANCES.

    I HAVE SEEN IT AT LOCAL PLANNING LEVELS IN MY OWN TOWN OF LONELY SCARBOROUGH. BROWN ENVELOPES STUFFED WITH CASH TO BRING ABOUT FORTUNE TO THE INTERESTED PARTIES.

    WESTMINSTER IS NO DIFFERENT, THE STAKES AND THE GAMBLE ARE MUCH HIGHER.

    ASK THE TORY PARTY DONORS WHO ARE BEING REWARDED BY PEERAGES AS WE SPEAK?

    “YOU CROSS MY PALM WITH SILVER AND I WILL CROSS YOURS”

    THE FALLOUT FROM THIS HARE BRAINED RAILWAY FIASCO IS APPARENT ON EVERY MAIN STREET OF EVERY TOWN OR CITY IN THE UK……….POVERTY…..

    IS A SHINY NEW RAILWAY THAT CUTS MINUTES OFF A JOURNEY TIME, PARAMOUNT TO PUTTING A MEAL ON A PLATE AND HAVING A ROOF OVER OUR HEADS?

    THESE JOKERS SEEM TO THINK SO!

    GIVE A WAVE FROM YOUR BEAUTIFUL NEW CARRIAGES TO THE REAL FACE OF THOSE AT THE SIDE OF THE TRACKS, THE UNDERPRIVILEGED, THE HOMELESS AND THE SICK……………………………

    GREAT BRITAIN, WHAT A FUCKING HUGE JOKE, HELL ON A SHOESTRING……………

    “YOU GO TO THE DINING CAR AND WE WILL GO TO THE FOOD BANKS”

  45. We Need a Better Secretary of State Now Not Never

    A Secretary of State For Charity and Poor Relief

    It is the Selfish Greedy Rich who are the Real Spongers

    • JUST RECEIVED MY THIRTY FIRST LETTER FROM THE DWP REGARDING MY ESA THAT WAS REFUSED……………………

      MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE GIVEN IN BY NOW, AND MOST PROBABLY HAVE, BUT I AM LIKE A DOG WITH A BONE…………………

      “I JUST WON’T LET GO”

      TO KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN CHEATED, LIED TO, SUBJECTED TO CRUELTY AND TORTURED, JUST TO SAVE THE TREASURY MONEY, IS THE LOWEST OF THE LOWEST.

      OUR POLITICIANS DECIDED TO STEAL FROM THOSE LEAST LIKELY TO FIGHT BACK.

      YOU THE DISABLED, AND THE POOREST IN SOCIETY.

      BULLYING THOSE AT THE BOTTOM SEEMS TO BE THE NEW SPORT OF THE TOFFS.

      TO STOP ME APPEALING TO THE UPPER TRIBUNAL I HAVE BEEN REBUFFED BY FOUR DIFFERENT JUDGES UP TO NOW,

      JUDGES, WALL, CRACKNELL, McDONALD AND BIRD……………..

      “EACH ONE HAS NOT ONE IOTA OF FEELING FOR THE CLAIMANT, OF THEIR PREDICAMENT, DISABILITIES OR LIFESTYLE”

      THEY HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY CHOSEN TO UPHOLD THE DECISIONS OF CHARLATAN HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS, PLEASE STOP LAUGHING!!!!

      JUSTICE AND LAW WENT OUT OF THE WINDOW YEARS AGO, THESE PEOPLE ARE NOTHING SHORT OF PARASITES WHO LEECH OFF THE MISERY THEY DOLE OUT EACH DAY.

      EVERY TIME THEY PUT THEIR MONICKER ON A DWP STRUCTURED STATEMENT, THEIR POCKETS BULGE EVEN FURTHER.

      YOU ARE SUPPOSED, IN UK LAW, TO BE HEARD BY YOUR PEERS.

      LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF PEER IN THE DICTIONARY. IT STATES “A PERSON OF EQUAL RANK OR MERIT”.

      OUR JUDICIARY IS NOTHING OF THE SORT, STATE CONTROLLED YES MEN………………………..

      ALL THE DECISIONS AGAINST THE POOR AND DISABLED ARE SO CLEARLY BIASED, AS TO BE BEYOND BELIEF………………………

      …………………..EVEN YEARS AGO I WAS TALKING TO A LOCAL MAGISTRATE OVER A BEER.
      I ASKED HIM IF THE JUDICIAL PROCESS AT A LOCAL LEVEL WAS INFLUENCED IN ANY WAY?

      HE REPLIED THAT THE JOB OF A LOCAL MAGISTRATE WAS MORE OF A SHOW FOR THE ACCUSED, TO LET THEM THINK THAT THEY WERE SEEING JUSTICE IN ACTION.

      HE SAID HIS JOB WAS EASY BECAUSE MOST DECISIONS WERE ALREADY PROMPTED BY THE CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE BEFOREHAND. HE JUST DID AS HE WAS INSTRUCTED.

      TO THIS DAY I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN WHAT HE TOLD ME………………..

      ODDLY, THE ZERO MARKS THAT I WAS AWARDED BY EMMA BRODRICK HCP, DO NOT ECHO THE EIGHT DOCTORS STATEMENTS THAT I UNCOVERED IN MY FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST FOR ALL DOCUMENTS THAT THE DWP HELD ON ME………….

      I WOULD URGE ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING A DING DONG WITH THE DWP, TO REQUEST ALL INFORMATION THAT THEY HOLD.

      IT COSTS NOTHING AND WILL GIVE YOU THAT VITAL BIT OF AMMUNITION TO FIGHT YOUR CORNER………………..

      MY PERSONAL INFORMATION WAS OVER SEVEN INCHES DEEP AND CAME IN THREE GIANT ENVELOPES!

      SO ONWARD I MARCH, CONFIDENT THAT I HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG OTHER THAN CHALLENGING THE STATE SPONSORED THEFT OF MY BONAFIDE BENEFITS…………..

  46. WW1 was a Massive Waste of British Life for the Enslaved State of
    Britain Today both in Terms of the Regime , The Oppression of the
    Poor and the Slavish State of too many British People

    Far from being Given ” Homes Fit for Heroes ” Many Returned to
    Misery and Squalor whilst the Ruling Class Snob Scum had their
    Mansions and their Obscene Luxury

    The Poor have been Used as CannonFodder by the Oppressive
    British Regime and the Evil Class System

  47. I hope you don’t mind me promoting my new facebook group but its all about this very cruel issue, we must get rid of this not fit for purpose test, we’re all working hard to help people, to get the word out, we’re out protesting, demanding change – please join us, together we can make change – so sorry for this poor man, I have read his story several times, and sadly he is not the only one, we have to put a stop to this now, we can’t wait until the next election, we cannot guarantee the tories will be voted out https://www.facebook.com/groups/abolishwca/ and https://www.facebook.com/groups/1465132827069198/

  48. Don’ t know why you expect David Cameron to start an enquiry. David Cameron is the reason why this poor souls benefits were stopped. Mr Cameron has chucked so many people off the dole just to make it look like he and his party are doing their job. There’s more people out of work now than there’s ever been. Mr Cameron is no more than a cheating deceitful bullying thug. I felt sorry for an English lady in the jobcentre yesterday , when she was informed that she was not entitled to any benefits as she’d been out of the country for eight months. seems to me England is the worst country to be an Englishman. This country is upside down, back to front and insideout
