DWP Whistleblower Exposes Obscene System

I've just read this post by Mike Sivier of Vox Political

With the way that the disabled, the ill, the poor, the unemployed, the elderly, and anyone who needs a helping hand, are being treated by the Tory Government, reading this wasn't a surprise - what does surprise me, is that it has taken 7 years for the ordinary man and woman in the street to actually start taking notice, and believing, what's been happening in front of them all this time!

Unless more people wake up to the thousands-upon-thousands of unnecessary deaths, happening every year in the UK, but especially since the Tories took power from their right-wing buddies, the Blairites, it's going to become a real health - and financial - catastrophe here in the UK. 

If nothing gets done, and very soon, we'll be catapulted straight back in time to the Victorian days, where you only have medical treatment if you can afford to pay for it and, if you become unemployed, ill, disabled, or elderly, and can't work any more, then tough - you starve!

Protests and Food Parcels at Ashton Under Lyne

I've been a regular reader of a wonderful lady, who has a Blog called The Poor Side of Life, and I read one of her posts just now, and thought it should be reblogged as much as possible, to bring what she, and many other people, are quietly doing to help in these times of austerity.

Please follow the link below, and read about what she's doing - and why she's doing it, and I'm sure that, you, like me, will have much to think about, and many thanks to her and her fellow helpers, for what she does every week, come rain or shine :)

What Austerity Has Brought Us To . . .

I was reading the latest post from a Blog I've been following for a while now:

The Poor Side of Life - Two Year Anniversary

and was saddened to see that this group of people, who have been demonstrating outside the Ashton Under Lyne Jobcenter for the past two years, still have no hope that things will get better for those who are ill/disabled/unemployed.

Despite Theresa May's promises that she will make things better for the ordinary man and woman, things only seem to be getting worse - and the fiasco of Brexit has only made that ever more so :(

Do follow the link above, and see what people are having to put up with, through no fault of their own :(
