BREAKING: House Of Lords Forced To Accept ESA WRAG Cuts

March 7, 2016

The Lords have chosen not to introduce new amendments to the Welfare Reform and Work Bill today.

Members of the Lords discussed MPs’ amendments on Universal Credit and Employment and Support Allowance. With reluctance, the House bowed to Parliamentary procedure and has accepted the primacy of of the House of Commons, because the Bill concerned finance.

Lord Low called it a black day for a half a million people.

The cuts to Universal Credit and Employment and Support Allowance will now go forward as the Bill will receive Royal Assent.

    In my humble opnion it’s disgraceful, both the cuts and not standing up with the courage of their convictions. . .

    Well what was the point in all the time and money wasted then ? They obviously had no intention of stopping it its just a pantomime they go through to make people think their on our side. It doesn’t affect them so they dont care. Its nothing to do with helping people back to work when they cut off people with cancer and the like. When are people going to wake up

    A silent cull on more like 1 million people ( we know they fiddle the figures). These folks will either starve or freeze to death. Further genocide on the long term sick and disabled as we live under this fascist dictatorship.

    meanwhile we are sending billions to the EU, millions on rockets to be dropped on Syria, a wage increase for MP’s yet we starve our own disabled, we sanction the most vulnerable in our society, but hey look we, the British Government are so wonderful provided you don’t live in the UK #TheyHaveNoShame

    The rich look after themselves and always have, they have no idea what it is to go without or to want, the likes of Cameron Osborne Duncan Smith all millionaires and born with the proverbial silver spoon still taking care of all their cronies at the expense of us serfs. Until there is Anarchy and we all stand up and say enough is enough they will continue to walk all over us and treat us no better than we were treated over 100 years ago dogs on the street. We need a democracy not a them and us governemnt these toffs do not represent me or my like they treat us with contempt as if we have no mind or understanding. I can only ask that Karma arrives sooner rather than later and takes the whole darn lot of them down ..

    They’ve got away with it for ESA WRAG, next will be ESA Support GRoup. Right Wing ThinkTank Reform have already suggested it and so it will come to pass. It is has really come to this

    the only people that should have a say, is taxpayers this is wrong, no sick person should do with out. there is not a care in the world. meanwhile mps are robbing tax payers on stuff they should not be, like suits, £39 coco pops, limo rides and more, and they think it ok to take of the sick. so much for tories helping. bad party sooner there out the better.
