Went along to this FPA action, and not just because we are personally affected - helloooo Southern Electric/SSE trying to charge us £2k+ for 3 months worth of electricity. A mistake in this case... How many others have 'mistakes' that are not as blatant or advocated effectively against?
Coppers doing the usual power trip
A rhetorical question. Capitalism has a lot to answer for, but hey! A tiny percentage of the population, the 1%, get wealthier on the backs of these pensioners' deaths. Shame on them.
Global women's strike state the case.
From The Guardian 9/9/2014:
The coroner said that when David Clapson died he had no food in his stomach. Clapson’s benefits had been stopped as a result of missing one meeting at the jobcentre. He was diabetic, and without the £71.70 a week from his jobseeker’s allowance he couldn’t afford to eat or put credit on his electricity card to keep the fridge where he kept his insulin working. Three weeks later Clapson died from diabetic ketoacidosis, caused by a severe lack of insulin. A pile of CVs was found next to his body.

Finishing where I started with this guy. All he wants is 'A fair deal before I kick the bucket'.
