People claiming sickness and disability benefits have been famously victimised by Conservative and Conservative-led governments since 2010. Thousands have died as a result of this mistreatment.
“Scope, the charity for disabled people, tweeted an interesting number when the general election was announced. There are, it said, 13 million disabled people in Britain. Some 89 per cent have said they will vote.
The reason that number is worth paying attention to is that if the 89 per cent are true to their word, and if they use their franchise to hold the Government to account for its brutal treatment of disabled people, it might just spell trouble for Theresa May’s dreams of a three-figure majority.”
Ministers need to be taught that there is a price to be paid for the way they have behaved. A sufficiently high vote against the brutal treatment meted out to people with disabilities by the Government could at the very least deny Theresa May the landslide she is hoping for.
Here are the people we know have died DWP-related deaths. Think about their families – especially if you plan on not voting at all because that’s just burying your head in the sand. What if this was someone you knew?
