Vox Political: Ian Duncan Smith Suppressing Report into Sanctions-Related Suicides?

This is another of Mike’s stories. Yeah, I know I should probably get some more of my own, but he does produce some good, incisive articles.

This time he’s asking if the reason a government report into the deaths of people, who have committed suicide due to the government’s sanctions regime, is not being released to the public, because it contradicts the Gentleman Ranker’s lie that there’s no link between them. Quite apart from the other statistics, which suggests that tens of thousands of people are living and dying in hopeless, miserable poverty because of his wretched sanctions and benefit cuts.

Mike’s article begins

It doesn’t matter how many times the Gentleman Ranker (Iain Duncan Smith, above) is told the facts – he’ll never publicly accept them. He is a sanction death denier.

Look at the number of people whose deaths were investigated by the Department for Work and Pensions, after they committed suicide following the application of a sanction by the DWP:

The DWP compiled a report on the causes of these deaths, but this is not to be released to the public.

According to David Cameron (replying to Angus Robertson in Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday), “We can’t publish the specific report which you talk about because it has personal and medical data in it which would not be appropriate for publication.”

But the government routinely publishes reports with such information redacted, and it is common practice to publish information in such a form in order to allow the findings to become public knowledge while protecting personal details.

The only reason this report is being hidden is to allow Iain Duncan Smith to continue denying what we already know – and he has already read.
