Tim Salter

Another victim of the cruel and inhuman regime .  RIP Mr Salter:

The 53-year-old, who also suffered agoraphobia, was about to be kicked out of his housing association home when he hanged himself in the hall.

A coroner ruled the Government’s decision to axe Tim’s meagre incapacity benefit contributed to his death.

And the former assistant store manager’s sister Linda Cooksey told how his fitness to work test was carried out by a physiotherapist with no ­experience of mental health issues or knowledge of his blindness.

Denis Jones

This blog is sad to post about yet another death.  RIP Mr Jones:

Denis Jones, aged 58, was discovered at his Tarleton Avenue home, in Atherton, on December 1 after a friend became concerned about him after not seeing him for several days and called the police.

 

The death was recorded as due to natural causes but James McIntyre, a close friend, wants others to know that they are not alone in struggling to make ends meet.

 

He said: “Denis was like an uncle to my children and to see him suffering was horrendous. His benefits were cut five weeks before he died because he had returned a form late.
