With any benefits system which has some form of controls in place, you will see some of these reported events happening. Obviously it is not just people that are claiming benefits that commit suicide. I think the biggest cause of death of men between 40 to 50 is suicide.
it would be interesting how the UK compares with other similar countries.
Does the UK have worse social problems than other wealthy countries? Are countries, particularly non English speaking, more community orientated, with family generations living close by, offering support to young and old ?
Trying to concentrate blame on one thing, without looking into all of the other relevant issues, can lead to misleading conclusions.
You would think that following a suicide death, Coroners would have obtained copies of all relevant information including DWP files. Why is there not a requirement to properly investigate such deaths at the time they occurred and to learn something from each case ?
No DWP is in denial, the Errol Graham case has caused much concern
