    Quoting Scope from the article: “We recognise the need for deficit reduction but decisions are being made without any real understanding of the cumulative impact cuts to welfare support and local services are having on people’s lives. We ur
    ge the Government to take action now, before the majority of its reforms come into effect, and to ensure disabled people do not bear the brunt of its austerity measures.” — This is really problematic. Cuts are NOT necessary; make the billionaires pay. By opposing disability cuts, I don’t want that to mean more cuts elsewhere! An injury to one is an injury to all — unite against ALL cuts!

    At nearly 60 years old and disabled, its hard enough managing day to day with my illnesses and disablities without the added stress (and thats putting it lightly) of having my benefits cut away. I dont in anyway live with any luxuries, just pay my bills and extra care and help costs from my disabled benefits. Even then, I cant afford to pay for much help to get out and about, so am stuck indoors most days. Removing my benefits will mean I will be isolated indoors unable to do anything for myself, dependent on any handouts I can get, I dont want to live like this, non of us do. The able world has generally no understanding of what being disabled is like!

    The Welfare of the Vulnerable is of Supreme Importance

    The only cuts that are necessary are cuts to ceo pay, bankers pay, bring in tough measures to claw back tax revenue from offshore accounts, make tax evasion and avoidance impossible to achieve. The greedy-boy Tories have an ideology which can be summed up as: rich is good, rich is best, richer is better. this is why they won’t listen and are prepared to break the law to achieve their psychopathic aims. this is why everyone needs to literally shout in their faces and frog-march them out of office.

    Wake up UK.

    I have Asperger’s Syndrome and only scammers who want me to money launder for them would want to employ me. Without my benifits I’d depend fully on my family.
