George Osborne Plans Another £25billion in Cuts, and Wants to Take Around Half of It From Welfare

So I'd like to introduce Mr Osborne to few people:

These are just the suicides, and these are just the people who've killed themselves due to benefit cuts since the coalition came to power. There were also the deaths of Paul Reekie and Leanne Chambers who killed themselves shortly before the coalition decided to expand on Labour's benefit cuts.

Then there were the people with conditions exacerbated by stress who died of natural causes because of the stress of benefit cuts.

How much longer does Osborne want this list to be?
