A Moving Facebook Post On ESA And Cancer

March 7, 2016

For some unknown reason, the Facebook embed of this post didn’t work for many readers. Same Difference apologises for these difficulties. We’ve pasted the full text of the post below because we believe everyone should read it.

Please read this. Many people who get cancer become too ill to work, whether the cancer is treatable and eventually goes into remission or it does not. Although the headline figure is 50% cure rate, for poorer people it is more like 25% because of late detection, late start to treatment and poor lifestyles diet-wise or lack of heating-wise. And that bastard IDS wants all these poorer people who get cancer to have just £73.45 a week to live on, while their cancer gets worse and worse. Only when their cancer becomes terminal; and they have six months or less to live does the ESA go up to £105 a week as only then will they be placed in the Support group. If this doesn’t give you an idea of how cruel, callous, heinous and immoral the present government is, I don’t know what will..

      How very strange. Shows up for me. I have been told that FB embeds don’t work on phones or Chrome.
