How DWP has confused everyone by releasing the right data for the wrong question on benefits deaths. (with tweets) · bengoldacre

People wanted DWP to say if sickness benefit claimants die after being found "fit for work". Sadly they asked for the numbers in the wrong way. Despite knowing what everyone was asking for, DWP acted like a literal evil genie, and replied "here are the numbers you asked for, and a puff of smoke..."

Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour would pose national security threat warns Osborne

Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour would pose national security threat warns Osborne | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
A Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn would pose a threat to national security by threatening the future of the UK's nuclear deterrent, George Osborne said.
britishroses's insight:

The majority of people are ready for change and sick and tired of working like dogs for less than a "Living Wage" a proper living wage not the Tory rebranding of the minimum wage, while corporations and big business pocket more money than they know what to do with. The government needs overhauling and cleaning up, bringing into the 21st century and put back into the hands of the people. Corbyn is the one to do this and with the backing of the "people" it can be done.

DWP's welfare reforms being investigated for 'systemic human rights abuses'

DWP's welfare reforms being investigated for 'systemic human rights abuses' | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The UN is to visit the UK to investigate whether Iain Duncan Smith’s welfare reforms have caused “grave or systematic violations” of disabled peoples’ human rights, it has been reported.
britishroses's insight:

As it should be one death from these reforms is one too many, statistical figures released this week show an average of 62 deaths per day of sick and disabled people thanks to IDS/DWP.  This is disgraceful to say the least; sick and disabled people need you and your support we need to come together and let the government know that this is NOT acceptable that we are here to take care of and support these people!
