Hi, my name is NoheatNofood! Means testing for PIP

NoheatNofood Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Lots of people talking about being means 
Tested for PIP if I did not get the money 
I would need to go into a Nursing home.
That at the age of 41yrs old would not be 
Good for my mental health.
After serving our country 
Is this what I have to look forward to 
I would rather put myself out of the misery 
That it sounds like the Tories 
Are looking to do ♿️
Meanwhile we have the Home Secretary 
Using a Helicopter to get around.
why was this totally necessary 
As a Tax payer I don’t think she should 
Be spending our money on this jolly up.
Then what about all the Taxpayers money 
that has not been recovered from the false claims to keep companies going
when the public wake up to this government are making the NHS look like it’s not working. Well Brexit made sure of that with so many health workers going back home.This is the same nurses that 
you all clapped for but now this government are trying to throw them under the bus.
last of all nobody has come out & said sorry about the mess that Liz Lettuce Truss f
mini budget caused so many people with 
Mortgages having to pay about an extra 
£200 pounds extra a month.
This government are trying to rip up our 
human bill of rights.
Letting our right to protest because we 
Are not giving our workers a pay rise 
Then mean while Liz the lettuce just walks 
away without a care in the world 
I really hope that she has made a lot of peoples lives & even bigger struggle

    It sounds like you share a lot of the same concerns I have @NoheatNofood!!  <3

    NHS being purposely driven to the ground, price rises, tearing up of the rights act, and that they do all of this while making protest illegal. It's so worrying and stressful.

    I don't know whether they'll means test disability benefits. Probably not. But they like to rumour stuff to distract people from the other rubbish they're doing. Then they'll announce not means testing disability benefits and everyone will be relieved and forget or ignore all the other poop.
