This post is an ongoing list showing the names of those that have paid the ultimate price at the hands of our previously Conservative led, and now wholly Conservative government, the DWP, Atos, Capita and Maximus. In essence, it is Vote of No Confidence in the UK Conservatives 'Memorial Roll', and as such it will be added to as the names are made available.

As you peruse these names, consider the fact that as of 2011 (the point at which they stopped counting) the actual figure of those lost due to the actions of the Tories stood at 10,600 people dead. Assuming that the figures have been increasing at a steady rate from that point on, then the number of dead was estimated to stand at approximately 44,000, with a projection of approximately 60,000 by the time of the next election.

This figure has now been shown via a recent FOI request to have exceeded 100,000.

To put this into perspective, the count as it stands now is about a half of the total number of lives lost to Adolf Hitlers 'Aktion T4' program during WWII, a program designed to dispose of those that the Nazis considered 'Useless Eaters' living 'Burdensome Lives', which is eerily similar to Tory Britain right now.

Think about that for just a moment...

Please note also that this memorial roll is not an exhaustive one as it shows only those names that have been reported upon via the press and media and will be added to as new victims come to light.

Hi there. I am the admin of the page that originated this list of names, which facebook has now seen fit to take down, for what reason I am uncertain.

Needless to say, I am now looking to recreate our 'Memorial Roll' on our page, but I am afraid that I did not save the current list of names to my hard drive before it was taken down.

I am hopeful that you still have the complete list to hand, and that if you do, you might see your way to being able to forwards it to me in order that I can get the list of names back on to our page.

Thank you in advance...
