Scrapping the Disability Living Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, the Social Fund, Community Care Grants and draconian sanctions on Job Seekers Allowance in the Welfare Reform Act 2012 are all part of the neo-liberal economic and neo-conservative political strategy of reversing the social achievements of organized labour in the 20th century and further restoring the class power of the capitalist classes over the working classes.

Scrapping the Disability Living Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, the Social Fund, Community Care Grants and draconian sanctions on Job Seekers Allowance in the Welfare Reform Act 2012 are all part of the neo-liberal economic and neo-conservative political strategy of reversing the social achievements of organized labour in the 20th century and further restoring the class power of the capitalist classes over the working classes. This is the same agenda we are seeing in Greece, Portugal and Spain, it’s all part of a global capitalist response to the financial crisis of 2008 and to the general crises of capitalism which has been structural and part of the ecological limits to exponential growth experienced since the 1970’s. We now face a choice between the barbarism of 19th century capitalism or socialism as the social-democratic phase of welfare-capitalism in the developed bourgeois democratic states draws to an end.

SAY NO TO CUTS,! SAY NO TO THE NAZI'S RUNNING BRITAIN!
Funny we have no money too look after our own community but we have enough money to spend on Foreign Aid to other Countries. Countries that use the death penalty against LGBT people.
People with mental heath issues are going to be hit hardest, 23 people are dying in Britain every day because of this ignorance, I think the Welfare reform is just another train to British death camps.

I'm all for occupying the Jobcentres and other DWP/ATOS buildings and offices in protest, when the British Govt. sees our mass resolve in defending ourselves, they'll soon back off.

We should always be striving to improve the way our country operates, but the last people you want to conduct these "reforms" are the Tories, particularly when they have no mandate. While putting the boot into the least well-off, who had nothing to do with causing the recession, they let off their mates who did cause it - and refuse to close tax loopholes. This injustice is further exacerbated when they laughingly suggest that we're all sharing the pain because we're in this together. Had...
