“In a way i do agree,
However in this one instance the picture of this poor lady who has just received the news that her child had been slain whilst on the phone i hope and pray will galvanise those in power to rid ownership of fully automatic weapons that no Normal people need !
it;s shockingpicture that lets hope will bring about a change to gun laws there .”
“I was thinking of the sick and disabled people who have died since they were found fit for work, 40,000 a year, thet must bring the figures down.”

“Post script. If you took 40,000 people off the sick list wouldnt that increase the unemploymen figures by 40,000 even if only on a temporary basis?”

“Someone mentioned this 40,000 deaths once before and several people asked for a link.I have looked for it and found 40,000 cancer deaths as well as 40,000 deaths due tomedical blunders but not the 40,000 you mention.”
“How many people on workfare, how many people sanctioned, how many people just not claiming for the 2 previous reasons, how many people working part time instead of full time? How many people have come of benefits because they have died?”

“Jann several good points about part time workers etc but "died"?
Dead people have NEVER been incuded in unemployment figures by any party.”
“the church does do a lot to help poor families, churchgoers know this.”

“Where and how many?
My point was and is when are the Bishops,with all the trappings associated with their positions in the church going to publicise the facts on how Church wealth is used for the poor. . From what you say,this information is known to churchgoers.”
“What this government is doing to sick and disabled people is a national disgrace. 40,000 people a year are dying within 12 months of being found fit for work,,when clearly they weren't. From Monday gone on the UN's day of people with disabilities, sick and disabled people in the WRAG group will be made to do work for their benefits, this is people with all sorts of illnesses and disabilities. Why isn't there a national out cry about this?”
“I hope when my daughter is looking for a job she can find an employer like you. She is doing her gcse's at the moment and working so hard to get good grades she is being held back by the 'normal' children in her class who can do the work easily but choose to mess about instead.”

“My daughter is under the same pressure janno000 - She is doing her GCSE's right now and 3/4 of the class do nothing but disrupt. When I went in to talk to the head about it he said he was doing what he could but se was in the best class for her year, the others were worse and when I suggested he took out the problem area and put them in a class together so they just disrupted themselves he said he could only do that if the disruptive group were smaller than the studious. Sadly they were the larger group.”
“A persons mental health is considered now in deciding if they are fit to stand trial etc. so their autism would be considered and rightly so should they commit a crime. My daughter is autistic and she is uber honest she and others like her are more likely to the victims of crime rather than commiting it.”
