Tory cuts will leave millions of families ‘permanently worse off’, says think tank

Fifteen-year income squeeze could leave families £1,200 a year worse off by 2025.

You know when politicians are devoid of any morality when they attempt to convince us that disabled people are playing the system, whilst at the same time claiming to be bullied and intimidated into publishing their tax returns.

For years we have been told that some disabled people are more ‘deserving’ of vital social security benefits than others, taking us back to the ridiculous ideology of deserving and undeserving poor.

We’re told that disability cuts are about ensuring that support goes to those “in the greatest need”, while condemning all others to a life of financial misery and endless cycles of unpaid work and government harassment.

But with such an incompetent and callous government, even those with terminal illnesses and the most severe disabilities are being denied financial support.

In reality there is no such thing as an undeserving disabled person, but in a country controlled by a powerful and uncaring media, prepared to slag off anyone for profit, the general public has been brainwashed into believing their taxes are being dished out in “handouts” to idle “scroungers” and malingerers.

We find ourselves living in a society where disabled people are demonised and brutalised by a scrounging elite, deliberately attempting to excuse themselves from any blame for the nation’s finances.

  1. This is the man who said before the 2010 election: “But what I want to explain to people is that in making these decisions, I want to, if I’m elected, take the whole country with me. I don’t want to leave anyone behind. The test of a good society is you look after the elderly, the frail, the vulnerable, the poorest in our society.”

    Looks like he failed the test!
