Every now and then, for a bit of a laugh, I play “Spot the truth” on the @DWPpressoffice twitter account. It would seem poverty rates came out today and I don’t suppose you need me to tell you they’ve gone up. Nonetheless, @DWPpressoffice are valiantly tweeting that some relative poverty levels have gone done and Hallelujah, 100,000 disabled people are no longer living in poverty!! How can this be? During the single biggest assault on the living standards, security and dignity of disabled people this country has ever known, disability poverty has FALLEN? Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the miracle of Atos! You see, if you tell hundreds of thousands of people with MS and cancer and Parkinson’s and heart failure that Lo! With one wave of the Atos magic wand, kindly supplied by the DWP, they are no longer disabled, then they can’t be disabled people living in poverty any more can they? Nope, they’re just, erm, people living in poverty, hence the overall rise. Cunning little foxes aren’t they? Courtesy of Sue Marsh at Diary of a Benefit Scrounger
