Ministers have spent almost £40m in an “appalling” attempt to stop sick and disabled people receiving the financial help they are entitled to, The Independent can reveal.

Freedom of Information requests have exposed how taxpayers’ money has been spent on futile legal battles to prevent vulnerable people receiving help.

Well...look at the long term saving on the scores of disabled (or simply poor) people that die every week as the result of "austerity".
Or of the fear that makes the impoverished too timorous (and occupied) to look at the big picture of the world, lef alone protesting.
40 Million is chicken feed.

The figures quoted below – and in the source article for which there is a link at the bottom – represent only a part of what the Department for Work and Pensions is spending on pushing as many people as possible (not just the sick and disabled) off of social security benefits.
