In Defence Of Iain Duncan Smith - By Hossylass

As if.

To be honest, I think that IDS is indefensible.
I have this to say to him, and all those other MP’s who “met a man”;
to all those neighbours who are expert medical consultants, but prefer to be bin collectors, lorry drivers and administrators;
to those Atos Doctors who don’t even try to be fair;
to social service workers with preconceived ideas;
and to those who should know better but can ignore their own knowledge in favour of easier to enjoy bigotry;
this is for you.

So, so you think you can tell,
Heaven from Hell, 
blue skies from pain. 
Can you tell a green field,
from a cold steel rail? 
A smile from a veil? 
Do you think you can tell? 
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? 
Hot ashes for trees? 
Hot air for a cool breeze? 
Cold comfort for change? 
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war,
For a lead role in a cage? 
How I wish, how I wish you were here. 
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year, 
Running over the same old ground. 
What have you found? The same old fears. 
Wish you were here. 

Living in a country that promotes people to consider themselves capable of judging blue skies from pain and a smile from a veil, and to condemn those who are judged to be “undeserving”.

Spinning lies on the spinning wheel of hatred, convincing the public that 75% of people are faking, and then patting yourselves on the back for "saving" billions.

Removing benefits from sick and disabled people and spinning it that they are “trapped on benefits, which is not fair on them”  is like raping a 10 year old girl and then telling her that at least she won’t still be a virgin at 50.

Indefensible doesn't even come close.

Lyrics by Pink Floyd.

Greed, cruelty, exploitation, manipulation, lying, using dehumanising language against vulnerable people, inciting hate crimes, arrogance, protectionism, allowing corporations to take over parliament to the extent that they are writing the laws of the land (NHS reform bill). What we have now is no longer governance, it is a coup d'etat by corporations and banks, and in my opinion those that have allowed this to happen are treasonous.

Is nothing sacred?

I was going to suggest you slip into a more comfortable state of mind and chill out with some floyd.

Then Camoron claims its his favourite - the fecking shyte-hawk !

I flicked through a few of these blogs, benefit scrounger scum etc, some of the tales are desperately sad, but I can't help but wonder at what point are we going to realise that a lot of these terrible situations are simply too expensive for the tax payee to afford. I wish we had enough money to help all of us, but we simply don't, blaming a politician is pointless.

^ Government troll at work

Plenty of money for bankers though, eh Government troll? And it's strange but the cuts won't even save that much money, as the savings are being given to the governments contractor friends. Like the ones you probably work for, you soulless PR troll scumbag.

Why don't crawl back into your hole and die, Government troll? Nobody believes your bullshit anymore. We know PR companies are hired to pervert debate and discussion and make it seem like the governments got a point. So do us all a favour and crawl away and die in a pool of your excrement you sickening piece of scum. Nobody here is listening to you.

I think your paranoid!

I'm just a tax payer, I work for the nhs.

I'm one of the dummies that go to work 9-5 every week, pay taxes so people get their benefits. Some don't deserve them, I would say most.
Then there's the other end of the spectrum , the rich, who seem to pay far less tax than me, yet they are earning far more...

I represent the silent majority, the people that actually make this country viable, by working and paying tax. Im fed up of seeing my family have to do without so that lazy families who didnt plan ahead (and now have kids they can't afford) can have all that hey want.

Oy mister silent bloody majority - no-one mentioned kids.

Floyd (if you care) wrote about mental health problems - you know the ones, the ones you cant see...

Honestly I wonder why I waste my literary talents sometimes... {wanders off to pick at the wallpaper}

My solution is to cut to the chase and ditch external failing agencies such as ATOS whose mistakes are causing millions to the tax payer just to put right.If Dave and Iain and Department of Dim Witted Prats had a little think then the quickest solution would be to ask the following questions:

What are your skills or what work can you do?

How does work need to work for you eg part time due to out of county hospital treatment, at home due to long surgery spells ect.

What do you need to help you work? Here the ASSESMENT of need should come in, very much like the Disabled Student Award for items they need to help study.

It ain't hard DWP basically look at how education works for disabled people and follow the lead and education practices. Don't fart about with Cosmo type questionnaires.

Chin up guys, the NHS workers are having awful times, taking massive cuts in pay, teachers are workin longer hours,transport departments in locality's that are not London are loosing their jobs and disabled people, elderly, single parents are feeling attacked. Times are horrid and naturally the criminal bankers are having their activities glossed over! These times will pass, I know they will, we all have to hold on to hope that it will get better some day x

DLA ILF and other incapacity benefits where all set up by Margaret Thatcher in the 80's so they could close all the Psychiatric hospitals so that all the patients could have "care in the community" and save the government money. Also it was very handy for the government to lose all out of work miners and steel workers to disappear off the unemployment figures and go on dla . Now the baby has come home to roost . Now these people are the target of the same government to finally do what they wanted to do in the first place and kick the most vulnerable in society on to the streets. But this will all backfire as there are a possible 2 million people that will be added to the unemployment figures and when there are admost 4 million unemployed the same government will soon be out of power.
