Why are Tories giving tax cuts to the rich whilst forcing the poor, sick & disabled into starvation?



Because they consider the likes of me to be a waste of oxygen. I'm meaningless in the grand scheme of things. I'll never vote for them so why should they care. It's only bleeding-heart liberals who care about Useless Eaters. The likes of me are not worth supporting in any meaningful way. Vermin don't deserve enough money to actually live on.

Volunteering time and energy in an attempt to reduce mental illness stigma through an art exhibition is not worthwhile. Volunteering time and energy to provide training to improve mental health services is not worthwhile. Helping out a struggling family with free childcare which might help them stay in work is not worthwhile. Raising money for various charities, when I'm well enough to do so, is not worthwhile. Looking after friends who need help is not worthwhile.

Hmm, when you reduce it to that it really doesn't look like much. Maybe I should just end my life and save the taxpayer some money. I can't though as I'm delivering Day 2 of training tomorrow and abandoning them with only half the training just isn't right.

We mustn't give in. Why should we let the forces of murderous fascism win; the very forces that our grandparents endured hell and laid their lives on the line to defeat? Especially when less that 15% of Scots actually voted for the Tories. They have no mandate and no legitimacy here whatsoever.

Having said that, as a long-term sufferer of anxiety, depression and an assortment of mental health issues, my back has already been up against the wall several times. The powers-that-be have left me alone for a while but I feel I'm existing on borrowed time, and who knows what's going to happen next? I have nowhere left to turn, and can't see how I could possibly survive being left with no money for six months again.

Hon, I'm currently suicidal due to dealing with the DWP, and this is triggery as hell for me. Could you put this entire post behind an LJ-cut?

I'm so sorry. I keep forgetting who is on LJ these days. It's hidden behind a cut now.

Much sympathy: and note that the news headlines today are all about a growing Conservative back bench rebellion over this -- a lot of Tory MPs in marginal seats are very worried about losing them at the next election, and there are some signs of the Chancellor being forced to back down on the disability cuts.
