    ....after becoming 'too poor to live through the winter'


    This is so sad, it sounds as if this couple fell through the net.
    People are being stripped of benefits here, especially *sickness benefits, it is a national disgrace. There are few jobs available.

    Just how are people supposed to cope?

    *People on sickness benefit are now assessed by a private firm, ATOS, who are paid for every person who loses their benefits. There are hundreds of appeals every month. ATOS have taken people off benefits who have terminal cancer, this country is in a big hot mess at the moment

    :( I can't imagine the desperation they must have felt. Something needs to change. No one who has ever served their country should find themselves without healthcare, food and a roof over their head.
