Of course we have already reported on two coroners (Michael Oakley & Andrew Haigh) who have come out and stated the DWP are responsible for the death of their clients.

The UN articles thought to have been breached by the Tories are as follows:

* The right to independent living –
(UNCRPD Article 19)

* The right to work –
(ICESCR Article 6 and UNCRPD Article 27)

* The right to fair and just conditions of employment –
(ICESCR Article 7 and UNCRPD Article 27)

* The right to social security –
(ICESCR Article 9)

* The right to social protection –
(UNCRPD Article 28)

* The right to an adequate standard of living –
(ICESCR Article 11 and UNCRPD Article 28)
