      If you do kill yourself, it will save us the job of bringing in mercy killings to remove the ballast from society. Once the useless eaters have been eliminated, Britain should begin to be Great again!

      You have a completely free choice, if you cannot sponge on your family:
      You can kill yourself now, starve to death later or turn to crime to pay for your “disabled” lifestyle.

      Or you could stop malingering and get a job!

    it is simple! the sick and disabled have got many worries and problems to be thinking off now and it will only get worse…. and nobody is going to stand up for the sick and disabled people who can not work very very unfair.

      Of course it’s unfair but, as I said when we handed over Rhodesia: “It’s not right and it’s not fair, but then neither is Mugabe’s left buttock.”

      What you have to ask yourself is why you have not yet been cured? Are you so ill that you are incurable or are you just happy being “ill” and sponging off hard working taxpayers?

    Ian Duncan Smith, not brave enough to use your real name obviously, You best hope I and others like me dont find you so we can string you up. I am now disabled and require assistance of benefits after putting on a uniform and serving my country and in the line of duty, was injured and lost my job due to not being able to serve as an infantryman. The medication and care required on a normal daily basis rule me out of ever holding down any long term work, and all so the likes o you have the basic rights to come on here and spew your bile!!
    Do us a favour and go kill yourself, save us the trouble of doing it and the taxpayers footing the bill for our keep in prison!!! Moron
