WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE’S LIVES….
I reckon Conan and I saw this at about the same time! (See the previous post.)
Q: What can we add to what Mhairi says?
A: Not a lot.
I just hope the Tories are touched by her passion for ordinary people who get a crap deal out of being British, and that they vote to tell the Work and Pensions minister to get back to the drawing board and see if he can’t fix the problems.
At the very least they could halt the rollout implementation until spring or summer when fewer people are likely to freeze to death.
He’s shown he can listen by his scrapping of the outrageous 55p-a-minute charge to phone the helpline. Let’s see if this kind of passion can persuade him to see sense. To carry on with knowing the consequences, particularly in the winter, it is frankly, inhuman….even by this government’s standards.
