If that goes back to my comment regarding currer's "Arbeit macht frei" remark, and myself labelling the Tory party with it as there current party slogan, then I stand by it. In the Guardian article I was referring to was this: A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman said working could give terminally ill people 'a sense of being useful' to which I left the comment "Arbeit Macht Frei - the new Tory party slogan" http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/sep/21/terminally-ill-told-benefits-cut I totally agree that the other political parties in the UK would make no change to most policy; for instance the Labour party now appears to be attacking Public Service workers by backing the Coalition on cuts. I also know the Labour party originally introduced the ESA and WCA system and then contracted ATOS to do the dirty work. However, the current Government have gone much further (too far) in actively pursuing the poor, vulnerable and sick in this county. They seem to take pride in attacking this group whenever they can and making a public case that we are a drain on the economy, whilst trying to do as little as possible to attack their friends - the healthy and wealthy tax avoiders. As I am within the first group and am under attack then why should I not attempt to defend myself and point this out? It is not just policy that affects people but the words and methods that are used that make things worse for those that suffer, as it is these words that the unaffected majority eventually believe, in the same way that the unaffected majority are lead to believe that ME is not an illness. And it is Government Ministers who decide what is said publicly and who do the harm, and right wing politicians are clearly adept at this process.
