Half his house is falling down, has basically no money as his benefits were going to some kind of tribunal as they reckon the poor sod is "fit for work". It was just heart breaking reading some of the accounts. Moving forward the way we are heading I would say your best course of action if you get in that situation would be a bullet or a high bridge as your basically fooked or soon will be as its just going to get worse and more and more hostile. Jeesaz! What kind of country are we becoming?
    In that situation and if I was desperate enough I would see if I could take down the main movers, shakers and 'approvers' of the systems that caused me to end up in such a tragic, desperate (and ultimately avoidable!) situation.

    On a less violent note, you might not remember the story of the Northumberland farmer who took to protesting in an unconventional way (no one was hurt, but he sure made his point!). Took him 10 years, but he finally got his compensation. Sometimes you just have to stick with it and never give up.

    I think it may be because of the the totally innocent suggestion, of taking the unfeeling animals who cause disabled people to feel so worthless, with them if they decide to take their own lives!!
