This is a really sad story, and what makes it even more sick is that it hasnt been until it gained public notoriety and bad press before any changes or actions were made.

More on this very sad story.
Could this be a modern day reflection on the welfare state ?

It is sad Byke. There have been many examples of this including another cancer patient that died and a woman with MS that couldn´t even feed or dress herself and FK wanted to send her to work. It is a sick sysyem now because of this stupid Alliance government.
