Death has Become Part of Britain’s Benefits System. Guardian

This pink card nonsense that is supposed to alert untrained mangers to the fact that a benefit claimant is threatening suicide.

Wow.  That really will sort all the problems.

How about not sanctioning them in the first place but giving them real help and support as the Oakley Review 26 recommendations suggest.

None of which have been implemented.

I don’t think one of the recommendations is that IDS should go but I think that might be a good start and then we work through the others.

Bring back the compassion, the caring and the support.
