Politics

My blog post are not usually about politics, I try to stay clear of mine field of MPs, legislations and Government Bills. But I feel I have to write about something that the Government is bringing in. As of Monday, sick and disabled people are going to be FORCED into doing unpaid work for charities, private companies and supermarkets, to name but a few. If the claimant refuses to do this work, then their Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) benefit, could have their benefits stripped by about £70 a week.

The Mandatory Work Activity (MWA) is the governments latest idea to get sick and disabled into the work place, whether they like it or not, or whether they are healthy enough or not. This government does not care about who it hurts or how much damage it does to society and to those most vulnerable. I know that I am no where near well enough to return to the work place. If I was, then I would be working right now. If I get forced to go to work somewhere, like a charity shop, I guarantee that things are going to get broken, causing me to get sacked on day one.

These companies that take part in the MWA are looking to line their pockets with money paid by the DWP whilst getting free labour. This cannot be allowed to continue. I have been told, unofficially, that Ed Milliband is to busy to help the sick and disabled who are basically being forced into slavery, so it is up to the general public to bring this country to its knees, until Adolf Cameron listens to us, and realises that what he is doing is not only morally wrong, but also violating basic human rights.

When fuel prices get too high, farmers take their tractors to the M25 for "go slows". When automotive workers say they are not getting paid enough, they hit the picket lines and go on strike. So when this country's government constantly hits and demonises the sick and disabled, we stand back and let it happen. Well this has to end, and it has to end now. We need to make the general public aware of the genocide that the Con-Dems are doing to the most vulnerable in society.

I urge people to tell their friends, tell their neighbours, tell everybody they can. People deserve to know about the people who are "running" this country. We need to shout at the top of our voices. We need to bring this country to a stand still. Drastic measures call for drastic actions.

    You're right about this. When someone is not fit to work, it should not be forced on them. Good for you for writing this and starting the fight. I voted for you. By the way, don't forget that you can vote for yourself. If you have the chance, stop by my post, Those Darned Interpreters, and vote if you liked it.
