Let’s be clear – Tory and Lib Dem MPs have decided terminally ill patients should work or starve

Mentally Interesting:

This government is inhuman beyond parody. There should be riots in the streets about this. What is happening to us?

Back in 2011, Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs joined together to reject an amendment which would have exempted terminally ill cancer patients from benefit cuts.

They decided that if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness such as cancer – but have been given more than 6 months to live – you will have to work or starve.

  1. Moral and physical laziness. I know plenty of people who are being fucked over by this abortion of a government, and they can’t be arsed to so much as cross a ballot box to stop ‘em getting in again. Some of them whine about their “principles”, but most just can’t be arsed.

    People need to wake the hell up before it’s too late. These bastards are killing us and the well-fed, pseudo-radical middle class Guardianistas are sitting back and watching and saying “Oooh don’t bother voting! They’re all the same!” Much the same morons who think that activism means going to poxy demos and breaking windows for the TV cameras – Self-indulgent fools, the lot of them. Unfortunately the rest of us have got the government that *they* deserve.

    Don’t listen to the Russell Brand tossers! Kick these suckers out of power, while you still can.

  2. Poloticians have no morals and ethics, it will be a long time to restore our rights and no discrimination.

  3. WHY DO WE PAY A NHS I UNDERSTOOD IT TO BE FOR YOUR SICKNESS AND PENSION YOU CLAIM SICKNESS BENEFIT FROM YOUR PAID STAMPS I THOUGHT !! SO WHERE ISTHIS MONEY GOING WE ARE LIVING IN A AGE OF THE DAYS OF ROBIN HOOD AND THE SHERIFF OF NOTTINGHAM REVERSED ROBIN HOOD GAVE TO THE POOR AND ROBBED THE RICH OUR ROBIN HOOD ROBS THE POOR AND GIVES TO THE RICHER WHAT A SHAMBLES THEY SHOULD ALL BE MADE TO PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH WORDS ARE VERY CHEAP FROM THE CONS AND LIBS NO BETTER THAT EVERY DAY THIEVES

  4. Now more than ever, patients in need of psychiatric care are given a fair chance. As modern medicine evolves and as more people are educated about mental disorders and addictions, the stigmas attached to psychiatry are starting to dissipate and the quality of treatments available are improving….. psychiatry
