ESTHER McVey’s appointment as Secretary of State for the DWP is nothing short of a slap in the face for the sick, disabled, helpless and homeless.

Praising sanctions and foodbanks in our so-called civilised society and advocating plunging people into abject poverty and misery shows no care, compassion or empathy.

She is another robot to Maybot’s failing Government. Sick, disabled and vulnerable will now be living in further fear of her wielding her egotistical power not for the good of people, but against them – again.
