There's many more but they're not described as suicides they just put them down to 'Mis Adventure' this keeps the true story from airing.
I empathise with Lee Robinson and his family.

This used to be a society that was proud of looking after people when they were suffering. Now we seem to want to hound them to death.

Society is a two way street. All members have to contribute in some way. The news today said unemployment benefits should be 'worked' for with some form of community contribution, instead of 'sitting on their arses' collecting money. Hear Hear we say.

Final thought. Mr Robinson seemed not to be entitled to ESA due to his medical condition which seems reasonable to me. He had to go to the jobcentre which seems reasonable to me. He only had to fill in a few forms to receive all the benefits he had been accustomed to. He may not been able to receive income related ESA or other benefits due to savings 6000 to 16000 which seems reasonable to me. Let's gather all the facts before judging our welfare system.

Duncan, "Sitting on their arses collecting money"? its just the sort of statement that I would expect from Conservative voting bigot when we're talking about someones death.
Big Society? Its an emancipated opinion of a very little man. Hear Hear we say!

I've got an even better idea, Duncan. If there's work to be done then let's call it 'a job' and pay a proper wage for it. Can't you see what's happening? Close a library by cutting funding. Sack the staff. Re-open the library with unpaid 'volunteers' or people making 'some form of community contribution'.Smart eh?

A pity then that you could only gather a handful of hypotheticals, don't you think?
