A letter a day to number 10. No 1,464

Tuesday 14 June 2016.

Dear Mr Cameron,

I would like to thank you for the GOV.UK web page – “Report online material promoting terrorism or extremism”.

I have taken the opportunity to report an organisation that has recently accepted that its actions are a factor in the deaths of many people in this country. In their defence they state that it would be inaccurate and misleading to link deaths solely to their behaviour. Which may be so, but that does not in any way absolve them of their extremist behaviour towards people in the UK and the part they play in causing the widespread distress that has led to so many deaths. The organisation is, of course, your governments own Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The website I reported was the Gov.UK ‘Jobseeker’s Allowance and Employment and Support Allowance sanctions statistics’. I included the following in my report: “The website represents Britain’s secret penal system, imposing judgements and sentences without trial or representation and depriving people of the means of survival. Something no court in the land would do. The sanctions regime is government extremism which leaves victims destitute and desperate.”

There are three levels of sanctions, lower, intermediate or higher level, that is 4 weeks, 13 weeks up to 156 weeks and since 2012 the amount sanctioned is ‘100% of the prescribed amount for a single claimant’. This prescribed amount refers to the minimum amount the law defines a person needs to live on, in other words the minimum amount of money a person requires for their basic survival.

Without food it is reckoned that it is possible to survive for three weeks, so with no other means of support, at 4 weeks the sanctioned claimant would be rather dead, at 13 weeks they would be very dead and smelly and at 156 weeks I guess they would be a somewhat withered husk. To the best of my knowledge death has an extremely limited recovery rate, so whichever sanction is applied, at the end of the sanction it is unlikely the body would be able to sign on without a great deal of help, nor yet be able to fulfil whatever commitments the DWP demands of claimants. It seems to me that under such circumstances the corpse would very quickly find itself subject to yet another sanction, but on the up side, the corpse will probably not be all that bothered.

Is it just me or does this all sound a bit extreme to you? Living in bonkers Britain it is hard to know any more, after all you Tories seem to maintain some functional capability even though you lack both hearts and souls. Despite this you do seem to have retained some limited ability for speech, yet every word that comes out is a lie, so I wonder if that isn’t just the babbling of the father of all lies transmitted through however he manages to animate your heartless, soulless bodies from the bowels of hell?
