Cost cutting lives
As we very often quote, at the National Health Service's foundation, Aneurin Bevan called Conservative Party politicians "lower than vermin" for denying the underprivileged the right to healthcare based upon the interests of private profit. But for sending out letters to the terminally ill claiming benefits, already often insufficient to live with for a basic quality of life and dignity before they die, they are much lower than this. At least rats and mice have the instinctual altruism to find food for their offspring. The mentality of the Tories that dehumanizes and suppresses the sick and vulnerable is of reptilian mentality. It would be more accurate to describe them as parasitical sub-vermin scum. I have come to the conclusion that it would morally justified and responsible to respond and prevent these crimes like the Jews in Nazi Germany of the Warsaw ghetto.
