But it is David Cameron who has cheered along whilst the DWP has spent billions driving the poorest people in the country into destitution. It is David Cameron who has been in charge whilst hundreds of hungry families have queued at foodbanks, or disabled people have been driven from their homes due to the Bedoom Tax. And it is David Cameron who is ultimately responsible for the deaths of David Clapson, Stephanie Bottrill, Victor Cuff, Jacqueling Harris and all of those driven to ill health and suicide by his Government’s callous devastation of the social security safety net.
David Cameron probably doesn’t even know that money runs out, and that when that happens, even in one of the richest countries in the world, the results can be fatal. He is the living embodiment of the something for nothing culture, a man who has inherited a milion pound fortune, but never done a real day’s work in his pampered life. It is unsuprising that someone so dripping in privilege has stayed in the background whilst Iain Duncan Smith has run rampant through the lives of the most marginalised in society.
David Clapson, who recently took his own life after his benefits were stopped, couldn’t be more different than the Prime Minister. Whilst David Cameron spent his youth trashing restaurants and quaffing champagne with the elite Bullingdon Club, David Clapson was a serving soldier. Whilst Cameron has spent much of his working life ‘chillaxing’ on holiday, David Clapson worked for sixteen years as a BT engineer, eight years for other companies, and cared for his sick mother. If David Cameron were ever to have to stop work due to ill health he would still live a life of luxury that normal people could only dream of. Yet when the same thing happened to David Clapson he was driven to despair, destitution and tragically his death because he missed a couple of meetings with the fucking Jobcentre.
Whilst Cameron has been enjoying yet another expensive holiday, over 180,000 people have signed a petition demanding an enquiry into the benefit sanctions which killed David Clapson. The petition is rightly addressed to the Prime Minister – because the blood is on his hands. It remains to be seen if he is brave enough to try and justify the death of a former serviceman in the name of trying to harass sick, disabled and unemployed people off benefits. He will do everything he can to ignore it (don’t let him – @David_Cameron)
Iain Duncan Smith, Esther McVey, Lord Fraud and all the other murderous clowns at the DWP must also be held to account. As should the craven Labour Party who began this attack on those with nothing and who have no plans to significantly change anything should they claw their way to back to power. But it is David Cameron’s Government that killed David Clapson. A man from the gilded toff elite where money rains from the sky is over-seeing a system that is demolishing the lives of the poor. It is beyond sickening. It must never be forgotten, or forgiven.
