Commentary: While the country is on the brink of financial ruin and those with a job are doing everything humanly possible to hold on to it and those without a job or are disabled are being witch hunted by the DWP so that excuses can be found to cease those benefits while at the same time prosecutions by the DWP have sky rocketed and are costing millions of pounds of tax payers money – the government itself shows no sign of tightening its own belt.

Why does this expenses fiasco continue; why do the people of this country sit back and accept it?  Is apathy so deeply ingrained into our society already that no matter what the crooks in Parliament do, no one will raise any objections?
