Just when you thought the DWP/Atos death trail couldn’t get worse… 73 Deaths a week, 6,643 deaths in this tiny part of the welfare sector alone, since the beginning of last year.
This cartoon was clearly devised before the latest figures came out. They are diabolical and make the punchline here look quaint in its optimism.According to an FOI (Freedom of Information) response publicised by the journalist Sonia Poulton on October 7, the current weekly average Atos/DWP death toll of people found fit for work after an ESA work capability assessment now stands at 73 people per week.
In particular, I would like you all to read Sarah’s comment. If you’re not disgusted, you must be a Tory.
