Disgusting.
Has anybody handed this list over to an MP? Not that i'd expect a compassionate, humble response but i'd like to see them squirm nonetheless.

I hope this gets a more widespread airing, there are way too many names on that list.

Am sure there will be plenty more deaths, now the UK has adopted a media/propaganda campaign, social & welfare policies of pre war Nazi Germany.

How many people really give a shit anyway?

Nobody does, you're on your own out there - no support from so called support services or nothing. If you have bro's & sisters that helps.

I know there's a lot of propaganda out there and the average citizen is quite obedient in hating on the poor.. but this is a disability benefit for people who are ill, after all.
Perhaps i'm being naive, but maybe more people would care if they knew how bad things were for people who are already suffering?
Maybe not. I don't know.

i have written an e-mail to my MP expressing concerns as to the effects of the continuing welfare reforms are having on those with long term/enduring/severe mental health difficulties, & have included a link to the list of deaths. Will wait & see what reply i get?

My local MP is actually really against this shit, but previously she'd been Vince Cable's secretary (or something like that) so unable to vote in these decisions.
Odd. But she's resigned from her secretarial stuff, so fingers crossed.

I'll be very interested in seeing what response you get. Do post it here. :)
