Please submit the links to articles in the tabloid media that you personally have found offensive, insulting, humiliating or degrading.
If you’re a bit stuck, just go to the websites of The Daily Mail, The Sun or The Daily Express and enter “fit for work” “Incapacity Benefit” “Workshy” or “Scrounger” (for starters) and see if you’re not pissed off that 70% of the population has swallowed their vile filth – hook, line and sinker!
This Government-instigated defamation campaign against sick and/or disabled people has served to ‘indoctrinate’ (for that is what it is) and deceive the “general public” into believing that there exists an army of scroungers in Britain -which is simply NOT the case.
All the empirical evidence clearly shows that the economic (“It’s the ECONOMY, stupid!” as the saying went in an 80’s US election) that decides whether we can work or not and – until the almighty ATOS took over – our GP’s and Consultants.
They peddled their defamation in order to whip up prejudice simply to cut £28bn from welfare – not including NHS and Social Care budgets – in the space of just four years.
They came for us first. YOU’RE NEXT!
Please tell the Leveson Inquiry why you think this is wrong and submit the evidence showing that the mass media has been complicit in crimes against disabled people; by supporting a government assault on disabled people that is unprecedented in the modern post-war period and by remaining silent on the injustices being perpetrated upon our people!
There follows from so-called “DRUK”:
We are responding to the Leveson Inquiry into press culture, practice and ethics due to the recent increase in negative reporting of ‘disability’ and a perceived (and possibly associated) rise in harassment and discrimination of disabled people.
We would like you to contribute by completing our short survey.
We will use the information you provide us on your experiences and ideas to feed back to the Leveson Inquiry. Full information on this inquiry is available online at:http://www.levesoninquiry.org.uk/
“DISABILITY RIGHTS UK” (Ah-hem!)
