DWP asked benefit claimant why she had not killed herself. Independent.

Yup, your caring compassionate Atos and Capita staff do ak this question.

I have witnessed it myself.

It is disgusting and deplorable and denigrating as well as harmful on so many levels.

The fact that this young lady’s condition had deteriorated and her benefit was reduced is also symptomatic of this cruel and inhumane system that puts saving money over support, welfare and help for those unable to work.

Sadly, the claimants are treated as liars and simply ignored and not believed.

Just how many have committed suicide we shall never know.

The suffering and trauma caused by this dogmatic and vile system is huge.

But then we can afford to spend billions on weapons and war and wastefulness galore.
