'These shocking images show 64-year-old man whose poor health meant his weight plummeted to six stone - but despite this he has been deemed fit to work.

The pictures of Stephen Smith, of Liverpool, Merseyside were taken when he was in hospital over Christmas when he was unable to stand.'

Crapbags would rather us all starve to death than give us a fair deal.

"Starving, unable to stand – but 'fit to work'
Of course, true joke shop mentality or lack of :whistle: :evil: .

Tories will do ANYTHING to appease the already gullible and mislead taxpayer.

All that bollocks about 'curtain twitchers' and the 'hard workers etc,'well they are finding out just how good it is to work under a tory government when your employer makes millions and the gov of the day feel it's only fair you work for next to zero and be saved by a cocked up welfare system called uc :evil: .

Classic do as we say not as we do.This is typical of politicians today.

Benefits boss Amber Rudd responds to 'deeply upsetting' case of six-stone Stephen Smith
She was told that Mr Smith, from Kensington, had said how an apology from government meant little if others were still suffering the same treatment as him.

She responded, stating: "I think that is a very generous approach of him to take.
