On the weekend before the most savage cuts to social security in generations are introduced, the Tory party have gone on a media offensive to attack sick and disabled people or those who are unemployed, low waged and poor.
Minister for Murdering Disabled People Esther Mcvey began the assault with a vile piece of propaganda in the Daily Mail on Saturday. Mcvey claims that many people who are “officially classed ‘disabled’ are no such thing”. Her nasty diatribe comes in advance of the changes to disability benefits which will see around a fifth of disabled people lose vital support.
This is a woman with so much real world experience that she still lives with her business-owning dad at the age of 45. Despite a half-arsed attempt at setting up a business, the nearest Mcvey has ever come to real work was sitting on the GMTV sofa. Is it any wonder we are in such a mess whilst chinless gimps like Cameron, Osborne, Clegg and Mcvey run the country like a bunch of posh teenagers who have never understood what it is to stand on your own two feet?
Elsewhere internet con man Grant Shapps was attempting to claim in the Daily Mail that just because some people get better or die before a claim for sickness benefits is assessed that this somehow proves everyone on the benefit is a scrounger. Rarely has the nasty party sunk any lower.
Shapps may not be as privileged as many of his Tory counterparts but he has certainly never had a proper job. His idea of hard work is to set up a few get rich quick scams and flog grotesque guides on how to pick up women to the gullible and desperate over the internet
And finally Iain Duncan Smith himself appeared in The Daily Telegraph with the ludicrous claim that he could live quite easily on just £53 a week. But then that’s because he sponges off his wife’s parents – living the high life in an inherited ancestral mansion whilst tax payers fund his lavish expenses. At least Esther Mcvey scrounges off her own parent.
Millions stare destitution in the face this month with ruthless and reckless cuts set to throw lives into chaos. Many claimants will be left with nothing at all to buy food after paying their bedroom tax, council tax benefits, water rates and other utility bills. Homelessness is already rising and about to soar as a direct result of this Government’s policies. With unemployment also back on the rise, particularly amongst the young, parts of the country may be unrecognisible in just a few month’s time as poverty not seen in decades returns to haunt the UK.
Not content with that however, this toff Government want to add insult to injury by slandering and abusing the victims of their policies in the national press.
