The Tories are trying to kill us all

Grenfell Tower was bad enough. But there's all this:

Almost 600 “additional” suicides could be related to the Government’s Work Capability Assessments, according to a study in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

30,000 premature deaths linked to fuel poverty and lack of social care.

A study published in the British Medical Journal found that for each additional 10,000 people re-assessed, there were an extra 6 suicides, 2,700 additional reports of mental health problems and an additional 7020 antidepressant items prescribed.

Statistics released by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) revealed that during the period December 2011 and February 2014 2,380 people died after their claim for employment and support allowance (ESA) ended because a work capability assessment (WCA) found they were found fit for work.

Additionally:
The NHS lost 7301 acute hospital beds since 2010. The Red Cross called it a humanitarian crisis. 20 A&E departments are set to close over the next 2 years, though the state of the government may put a stop to that.

Altogether 15,000 NHS beds have been lost in the last 6 years.
