Crippen's Tory Scam

Crippen's Tory Scam

Description: The cartoon shows two figures standing in front of a large flow chart. One of them is a white man in a grey suit carrying a large cheque with ‘HM Government pay ATOS ORIGIN £300,000 tax free’ printed upon it. The other person is Prime Minister Cameron. He has a thumb raised and is holding a large bag of cash behind his back. The flow chart designates the path of a benefits claiment from being assessed by ATOs and having their benefits stopped then appealing against the decision and having their benefits reinstated. The flow chart also indicates that the money that is stopped during the appeal process is given to ATOS and that up to 50% of appeals against the stoppages are upheld, although the restarted benefits are not back dated. The flow chart also indicates that the claiment is reassessed after 6 months and has to start the process all over again!

    The only thing missing from the chart is the coffin boxes such as the one that took his life in Edinburgh at start of those changes.
