In the U.K. between 2011-2014 2,380 people died - up to 600 of them suicides - having been declared "fit for work" and having their benefits withdrawn, and a further 7,200 claimants died while still on ESA and being placed in the work-related activity group (DWP figures).
Last year alone 27,000 "extra" elderly people died due to "austerity cuts" (Department of Health).
People are currently dying at the rate of just under 90 a month.
This is set to climb steeply as winter progresses now that the benefit caps on housing benefit and universal credit have come into force.
If this government is allowed to continue this war of attrition against the underclass of poor they have created it won't be long before they will have killed more people in this country than the 67,000 civilians who died in the U.K. during WW2 as a direct result of hostilities. By Xmas next year they will have exceeded that number by over 2,000.
The score so far, therefore stands at WW2 67,000, Conservatives: 36,580, increasing by at the very least 2,486 souls every month.
It is utterly beyond me how this can ever be justified or accepted in any way.
