Man loses benefits because he had heart attack during work capability assessment

More evidence that this government is a sick travesty, just as IDS and the DWP are shabby caricatures of human beings. It’s no point asking how low they can go, as just when you think they really, really can’t go any further, they go just that little bit deeper beyond any semblance of humanity or rationality or even basic decency …

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

A man with heart problems who couldn’t complete a work capability assessment because he had a heart attack during the interview had his benefits stopped by the job centre for ‘withdrawing’ from the interview.

I promise you this is not satire. Here’e the story from the Oldham Evening Chronicle:

Heart-attack victim in cash-axe shock

The UK under this government is getting harder and harder to satirise day by day.
