‘They must be held to ac­count for poli­cies’

Leek Post & Times - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

THE Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions don’t care if how they op­er­ate the ben­e­fits sys­tem causes harm or death to claimants, as long as they are not held re­spon­si­ble.

The gov­ern­ment wants to hide and deny the un­palat­able truth of the dam­age and de­spair their de­struc­tive poli­cies have cre­ated.

Rather than com­ing clean, it is charg­ing on, cre­at­ing more ca­su­al­ties due to Uni­ver­sal Credit and through inaction over so­cial care.

With many dis­abled peo­ple no longer here to tell their sto­ries, it is im­per­a­tive on all of us to keep in­formed, be sup­port­ive to­wards those who need it, and en­sure the gov­ern­ment is held to ac­count. Mark Fletcher Name and ad­dress sup­plied
