    Well written. So much there,so much for me to say. But just wanting to vomit right now… don’t know where to turn anymore.

    As far as I understood, the Lords are not allowed to send back the original amendments in this situation, they had to propose new amendments – as close to the original as they could, but costing less, otherwise they would not even have been considered.

    So will Pat’s Petition still be worth while continuing with?

    What a well thought out and fantastic piece. Everything you say is true. What I would like to know is what the Scottish government is doing NOW not just in the future. They have ALL condemed the bill but have been strangely quiet for quite a while. We don’t want soundbites. We are all suffering. What makes it worse here in Scotland is the fact all political parties have come together to say it’s intollerable but are doing nothing! People are terrified and Alex saying yesterday publicly how disabled people are worried although true doesn’t help us practically in the slightest. Sounded good for the campaign though eh? Were not stupid and know there is nothing to be done and
    outrage doesn’t heat our homes(given we still have them) or give us food in our belly’s.Hope for the future even! Between now and the referendum and possible separation people are going to die of neglect or suicide. In this day and age it’s intollerable and inhumane. We need help now not in years to come. Why are you all so silent at Hollyrood? Give us help and hope, at least fight for us. Thats what you were elected for! Or am I living in a rosy utopian society that doesn’t exist.
