To My Mind the very Idea of Stopping "Life-Saving" Benefits to a person as a result of a "So Called" Drug Test is outrageous;
And a violation of "Basic Human Rights" EVERYONE In Need Should get a Basic Level of Social Help;
Of Course here in The "Police State Of The UK" Such things have been outlawed by the Minority super rich & The Banks.
What the hell happened to FREEDOM Anyone remember that?; Before Tory Dictatorships And Crazed Thugs like Thatcher & May took Control.
Today we have Government for the 5% Rich Elite; Its Bloody High Time the other 95% like You & Me
Took the FIGHT to the Rich Bastards and retook Control. :angry:
