Disabled people off the streets and …

An alternative to Care Homes?

Crippen’s cartoon about Workhouses for disabled people

Cameron and his cronies might as well be shouting out loud that they want disabled people off the streets and back into the care homes and institutions that some of us originally fought our way out of.

With a carefully orchestrated hate campaign through the tabloid press, this government have worked hard to convince people that we are work-shy scroungers, with most of us only pretending to be disabled. And described by their role models in former Nazi Germany as ‘useless eaters’, we are therefore the cause of the economic crisis that this country finds itself in.

Along with this trend can we expect to be issued once again with licences to beg and a place found for us in the Workhouse?

    What is clear is that Osborne and Duncan Smith want to dismantle the welfare state and create a free market economy of misery. One has only to look at the USA to see abject poverty and greedy, unprincipled capitalist enterprises like UNUM feeding off the backs of sick and disabled employees. They aren’t fascists, but their neoliberal capitalist agenda could produce the conditions where hopelessness breeds fascism.

    This week has shown us the extent to which the Tories hate the lower classes and are prepared to roll back the gains made over the last 200 years. We are facing life or death situations and yet too few are joining together to form an active resistance movement.

    Why don’t they just put us all in chambers and gas us all. Oh sorry!….That would obviously be murder. Wouldn’t it. Death by beaurocracy seems the safer more cowardly option.

    I wonder, I don’t think the COn-Dem administration has lost it’s moral compass, I think they never had one in the first place. I keep recalling Rose Dawson’s line from ‘Titanic’ when I see the latest Con-Dem outrage ‘you unspeakable bastard…’
