A new low for the UK: disabled man starves to death

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

A severely disabled and sick man – who had his benefits stopped after ATOS found he was ‘fit’ for work – has died of malnutrition.

Mark Wood’s GP said if either ATOS or the Department for Work and Pensions had contacted him he would have said in his professional opinion Mr Wood was not fit for work.

But Mr Wood’s GP was not contacted by either ATOS or anyone from the DWP.

Here’s Mark Wood’s tragic story from the Oxford Mail:

Man starved after benefits were cut

So now in this country we’re leaving vulnerable people to literally starve to death.

A new low even for the Tories and Liberal Democrats, surely?
