Black Triangle’s Preliminary Response to The Scottish Parliament’s Rejection of the Morally Bankrupt Coalition’s Welfare Bill

October 6th 2011

To say that we warmly welcome this development would be a gross understatement.

The Debating Chamber of The Scottish Parliament at Holyrood

Black Triangle and Inclusion Scotland have been lobbying MSP’s for this and we will continue to work together to see that all our voices are heard and that all our views are fully taken into account by MSP’s and the Parliament’s Health and Sports Committee.

In the coming days we will issue a further joint statement after consultations with disabled people’s organisations and among ourselves.

We sincerely hope that Scotland will take the lead on the fightback against this appalling Bill and that it will empower and encourage all our brothers and sisters in our movement in all the other countries in the UK.

We will not cease to fight until all the dogs have been called off sick and/or disabled people everywhere and our human rights have been fully restored to us. 

Not only do we reject these ideologically driven cuts to welfare, we demand better for all the sick and/or disabled people of the UK.

We demand a life of independence,security and dignity; social justice with freedom from fear, freedom from official scapegoating and tyranny; and full inclusion in every aspect of society – economically, politically and socially!

    I only wish the government were “morally bankrupt” – we could at least then do without the sermonising about all the ethical values or principles that supposedly justify making disabled people’s lives harder than they are already.

    Do you have room in Scotland for all of us as well?
    Look we are really sorry about William Wallace, could we offer you Cameron in recompense to be hanged, drawn and quartered – strangled by hanging but released while he is still alive, castrated, eviscerated and his bowels burnt before him, beheaded, then cut into four parts. In fact we would be willing to pay you as well.

    Lord Freud Please note “You can Fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time”
    Your time has run out , we the underpriveliged sick and disabled will eventually bring you to your knees, along with the “New Messiah” IDS and the truthless Grayling .
    Slowly but surely the masses are coming to see your policies for what they are , keeping the top 2% in their finery.
