The Prime Minister David Cameron is standing in a field surrounded by plant stalks that have human heads. There are placards distributed amongst the heads which read 'Disabled people united' and 'Disabled people's groups'. He is holding a bloody scythe and has just lopped the heads of a cluster of these stalks that have a placard that reads 'Disabled people on DLA'.
