More DWP psy-torture of the vulnerable
Not 100% convinced by the sensationalist tone, but it's a given that they're introducing artificial barriers to participation. And if you were to beat them to a thin worthless paste as they deserve, you'd still get sanctioned. Or go to jail. One of those.

Yet more evidence that assessments take no regard of fluctuating conditions. "`They are hitting people who are least able to protest,' [a sufferer] says, `I was seen by someone who was not a healthcare professional. The meeting was supposed to be half an hour but it was squeezed into twenty minutes. I had to appeal and there is evidence that items were deliberately lost.'"

Poor and disabled? Tories think you’re a troublemaker
"It is quite likely that none of these conditions are under the control of the family themselves, and yet under government plans they can be penalised for it. Even worse than that, though, is the presence of illness, disability and mental health on that list. These are definitely not under the control of the people involved, but it is clear [...] that the government do blame these people."

The graph that shows how far David Cameron wants to shrink the state | The Guardian
"If George Osborne gets his way, within the next five years, Britain will have a smaller public sector than any other major developed nation."


"Forget all that ministerial guff about the necessity of cutting the public sector to spur economic growth. Had that argument been true, British businesses would be in leonine form by now, instead of their current chronic enfeeblement. It was notable at last week's Tory party conference how Osborne and David Cameron didn't even try to argue for the economic benefits of austerity – how could they? – but grimly asserted that there was no alternative."

Disabled are at the mercy of ministers and media | News
"Typical is a case heard last week when a teenager attacked a man walking along the street, shouting: 'He's disabled. He deserves everything he gets'." It is incredibly weird how it's apparently acceptable to orchestrate a hate campaign against an entire demographic, as long you can lie about that demographic being a drain on tax.

Coalition overturns Lords amendments on welfare and bans further dissent | Politics | The Guardian
Government propses thoroughly evil bill. Upper chamber amends bill. Government cancels amendments and instructs upper chamber not to amend anything in future. I'm starting to get the hang of this "democracy" thing. I don't like what I see.
