Man burned alive in Britain – but does anybody care?

Another of Iain Duncan Smith’s victims. Another name to add to the at least 45 people, who have died or killed themselves through poverty inflicted by the Tories benefit cuts. And Esther McVile, poor thing, objected to Debbie Abrahams’ questions about these deaths, and said they were ‘inflammatory’ and that it was ‘wrong to politicise the issue’.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

A man was burned alive in Britain – and nobody seems to care.

Malcolm Burge, 66, found himself more than £800 in debt as a result of a government decision to cut his housing benefit by 50%.

The council dealing with his case was also unable to correspond properly with Mr Burge because of a massive backlog they were experiencing – again due to government cuts to local government funding.

And so – on the same day he received a letter telling him he had to repay the money – Mr Burge drove to Cheddar Gorge and burned himself alive in his car.

Just the latest victim of Iain Duncan Smith’s war on the poor:
