Yes, we have these warnings. But do politicians give a fuck? No.
Unless some radical action is taken they'll just continue on picking on the weak.

Vote labor.
don't have much faith in labour, can't forget that labour dwp minister pournelle who said they'r stigmatise those on benefits, an apology for that might help, freud was labour now tory,

In my constituenct glenda jackson won by 7 votes, so what if i don't vote labour and the torys get in, phoned glenda wanting reassurance she'd help me if the dwp got tough she said everyones short of money, maybe she felt she was been set up

The labour candidate who's replacing glenda mentioned mental health, wondering if she's after tthe hampstead therapist vote

Democracy is mob rule. In good times no issue, mobs got no mind and any idiot wins. In bad times there's always a new Hitler in the crowd, ready to take advantage.
