Britain is becoming a fascist state and the sick and disabled are facing an existential threat

An example of practical fascism in action: The DWP ministers and HM Treasury in Britain are allowed to use draconian austerity measures with impunity to starve sick and disabled people (https://twishort.com/fMinc) and to drive them to suicide by stripping them of their lifeline benefits (https://mzolobajluk.wordpress.com/2015/09/14/the-increasing-death-toll-due-to-the-loss-of-benefits/)—and the Met Police are refusing to investigate the Mark Wood starvation death (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2592214/We-wrong-Government-admits-not-axed-disability-benefits-Aspergers-sufferer-starved-death-just-four-months-later-weighing-five-half-stone.html and https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/mother-of-fit-for-work-victim-calls-for-ministers-to-face-criminal-charges/) and other austerity deaths (and, https://www.thecanary.co/uk/2018/08/16/the-dwp-was-just-forced-to-reveal-that-100-benefit-claimants-a-day-have-been-dying-on-its-watch/; https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/11/16/dwp-suicides-assessments-research_n_8577038.html; and, https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/tory-austerity-deaths-study-report-people-die-social-care-government-policy-a8057306.html). There are allegations of a government cover-up: (https://www.thecanary.co/uk/2018/07/20/has-the-dwp-covered-up-its-role-in-claimants-deaths-labour-the-snp-and-greens-demand-answers/; https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/four-opposition-parties-demand-dwp-answers-over-wca-deaths-cover-up/; https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/opposition-parties-call-for-inquiry-into-ministers-wca-deaths-cover-up/; https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/abrahams-drags-new-labour-into-stephen-carre-suicide-report-cover-up/; https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/government-departments-and-judiciary-in-fit-for-work-suicide-cover-up/; and, https://voxpoliticalonline.com/2015/10/24/claimant-death-scandal-chief-coroner-is-failing-in-duty-to-prevent-future-deaths/).
