    Why am I not surprised to see such a small number of MP’s debating the Welfare reforms. Many care nothing for people who depend on Welfare payments, for a whole host of reasons, and their is nothing for them to gain by turning up for work. I, and very many more people, will feel very let down by this showing and all parties should hang their heads in shame for this debarcle.

    I found this on Hansard from todays debate .
    Ian Mearns: Labour Gateshead
    I am about to discuss that, and I could not agree with my hon. Friend more.

    Put bluntly, this Government, the Department for Work and Pensions and their agencies are telling us, repeatedly, that people who are dying are fit for work. Between January 2011 and November 2011, some 10,600 employment and support allowance claims ended and a date of death was recorded within six weeks of the claim end. This Government have repeatedly refused to release updated 2013 statistics on deaths within six weeks of the end of an ESA claim, calling such requests for information “vexatious”. Four people a day are dying within six weeks of being declared fit for work under the WCA—it is scandalous and an indictment of this place. Some might consider this bad taste, but I am told that there was a story doing the rounds that when the bones of Richard III were discovered in Leicester, Atos carried out an assessment and judged him fit for work. It would be funny if it was not so sad. It is a sad truth faced by 12,000-plus families who every year face their own personal tragedies of this nature—it is a reality.

    I was shocked to discover the vast majority of MP’s did not attend the WOW debate.

    Thank you for sharing the photo. Indeed a picture is worth a thousand words.

    How many words is a fabricated picture worth?

    If you check Hansard, you will find that there was no business whatsoever relating to MPs’ salaries on 11/072013.

    Sham,e that you’re misleading people with your attributed pictures. That bottom picture is from a session of PMQs and has nothing to do with a “discussion” of MPs pay. They don’t even have control over that themselves you know…

What are you thinking?
