The savagery of the government clampdown on benefits was highlighted in one case last week.
Bryan Haigh had surgery to remove a tumour from his brain—and two days later his Employment and Support benefit was cut.
Doctors warned Bryan that he shouldn’t drive for at least six months because of a risk of seizures. Surgery left him with 32 staples in his head.
“When the letter came, I just couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I do want to work but at the moment I just can’t. I feel like I have been kicked in the teeth.”
The Department for Work and Pensions has reversed the decision and apologised.
But Bryan will still receive just £65 per week.
The Tories are forcing sick and disabled people to live in misery. And they plan more attacks that will force the unfit back to work.
