Joint Statement and Petition by DPAC and Black Triangle Anti-Defamation Campaign in Defence of Disability Rights on the Labour Party Anti-Bedroom Tax Campaign

Unbelievably, the UK Labour Party, currently in opposition, has launched a campaign against the government Bedroom Tax welfare, but bizarrely, this contains an equally draconian welfare reform.

In the campaign script (page 4) of the document, ‘Labour Party Campaign Against the Bedroom Tax’ (attached), issued by the Shadow DWP Minister, Liam Byrne, we are told:

*“The best way to bring down the benefits bill is to get people into jobs. That’s why Labour is calling for a tough but fair compulsory jobs guarantee.

“We would offer anyone who has been out of work for more than two years a real job – one that they would be required to take, no ifs and no buts…”

“Britain needs real welfare reform that is tough, fair and that works….”



Urge all disabled and non-disabled activists campaigning against Tory welfare reform and in particular, the Bedroom Tax, to call on Labour members, constituency parties, plus affiliated and non-affiliated unions and political groups, to:

Challenge the Parliamentary Labour Party in the strongest terms, on why it considers compulsory labour necessary to combat the Bedroom Tax.

To start with, they should be told:

1. To use the current protests against the bedroom tax by disabled activists and others as a Trojan horse from which to promote a policy of benefits that is conditional on compulsory work is utterly beyond the pale.

This means that those unemployed and disabled men and women, who campaign against the Bedroom Tax within the Labour Party will, in effect, be campaigning for their own forced labour under a future Labour government.

2. We have to be absolutely clear: There is no such thing as a civilized society that treats people in inhumane and degrading ways.

A welfare ‘safety net’ conditional on exchanging labour for an uncertain standard of material life is a contradiction in terms.

3. No real job is compulsory – does the Labour Party understand the economic meaning of free labour? If not, how can it run any kind of economy, let alone a socially just economy?

A Labour Party welfare policy should support those whose lack of social power has reduced their circumstances, not compete with a Tory-led government to smear them as feckless and undeserving of a living wage.

4. Liam Byrne should immediately strike out all references to work conditionality or compulsory work, attached to the Labour Party Campaign Against the Bedroom Tax.

Many people already have paid employment and cannot get enough hours, despite being registered with various employers. They are constantly applying for jobs and attending interviews and having to get support from the DWP when their hours are not enough to support them, Despite being signed off for weeks on and off depending on their circumstances, they are threatened with having to take part in unpaid work schemes. This is insane barking bonkers the lot of you.. We also pay tax too and go for weeks to get reinstated on benefits whilst waiting for our meagre wages at the end of the month

451 AYE lorraine homayon-jones one of millions of carers who are devalued and stigmatised for defending our cared for.

452. AYE Ernest Ross, Easter Road, Leith, Edinburgh. Black Triangle Campaign Edinburgh  member. Solidarity to all here for this magnificent expression of support for sick and/or disabled people under attack! Let us hope against hope that the Labour Party will listen to our united voices! 461aSolidarity with John McDonnell and Michael Meacher MPs and the 41 Labour MP’s  who proudly voted against IDS’s Emergency Bill last week, honoured the founding traditions of the party and particularly, we praise Iain Mearns MP who resigned from his post as PPS this week rather than support the iniquitous complicity of Liam Byrne and the Labour front bench with the ConDem’s so-called ‘welfare reforms’. These so-called ‘reforms’ with which Labour is complicit are driving disabled people to the brink of annihilation. Let us end the barbarism now. NO to the ‘Progress’ faction and Neoliberal Labour! Let the Labour Party return to its roots! To The Spirit of 1945!

The welfare reforms espoused and pursued by the Tories are an affront to civilisation and should be  fought at all costs. Stand up for the working people Labour.

588 AYE Roseanna Grayston, London – a person’s ability to work is not just about their physical ability to complete certain tasks; it is also about their ability to be employed – whether or not those with the power to give employment think a person is “fit to work”. Until the Labour party announces a comprehensive strategy for tackling discrimination against those with physical and/or mental impairments in the workplace, the expectation that everyone must get a job or lose their means of sustaining themselves is not just unreasonable, it’s verging of eugenicist.

  2. Susan Archibald says:

    Not surprised at all I have said for long time so many in New Labour support all of #WRB

    I can see we’re supposed to click ‘edit’ and insert our names at the bottom, but it doesn’t work on my current device. Whose idea was it to do a petition using a Google Document?

  4. Bluesky says:

    to add your name all you have to do is type in your name on the end of those who have signed….

  5. Graham Barnett says:

    I am disgusted with Labour. They are supporting the coalition by attacking vulnerable people.

  6. Jim Monaghan says:

    As a Labour Pary member, I fully agree with this statement. Dont write off Labour activists who are working hard to change the party’s policies but yes, the leadership are way off the mark and their “solutions” just add to the attack on disabled people and the unemployed.


    Our coalition government and the Labour party are just like Hospitals and Manufacturers, out of touch with what is going on at the lowest level……..

    They are all the same inasmuch as they dont know whats happening at the bottom. They think they know what the problems are, but never think to ask………..

    All of them squander vast amounts of money and ask third parties, in the form of consultants, to formulate a view.

    The view is always tainted in the favour of the paymaster who loves to carry on ignoring the shop floor in favour of men in suits who have no idea…….

    Problems exacerbate because nobody is listening. The shop floor blame the management, who in turn blame the workers..

    Nothing is ever achieved……….

    The time to listen is now. Not when the the machinery of life breaks down…..

    They call it Democracy, a simple word having endless solutions……

    For Fucks Sake Listen……….

    1. Laz says:

      True on every point Geoff ,but unfortunately as we see even at Governing level too many bull shitters get into positions of Management who listen to accountants and bankers who have no idea on the logistical front. Due to their arrogance and ignorance or greed the REST OF US suffer .

  8. David says:

    A life of luxury living on benefits, sleeping all day, and generally having a whale of a time. Reality then kicks in and I am stuck indoors unable to go out without a carer, relying on other people to do things for me. God how I laugh at the wool I am pulling over the governments eyes claiming all this money for nothing. I always thought that the labour party was the party for the poor and vunrable. It now seems they are just an extension of a coalision determined to bring the most needy to their knees.

  9. David Moynagh says:

    The modern day labour party lost their direction after Tony Blair inflitrated it and ruined it. They are now as bad as the tories. They have lost my vote for life. It will be SNP for me from now on.

  10. Dominic Mulgrew says:

    Labour are a ruling class and racist party. Always have been – always will be. Look at the history of the labour party – one of imperialist attacks on oppressed people abroad and punishment of the poor in Britain. They are actually more dangerous to the working class than Tories as they disguise themselves in progressive rhetoric (on occasions) with people like Jim Monaghan (who posted earlier) either falling for their tricks or be a willing collaborator with their ruling class imperialist policies in an effort to save the privileges afforded to them by this system. We will not let the fight against the bedroom tax and the cuts be led behind or highjacked by a ruling class party; or their sympathisers. Break with Labour! This is class war! http://www.revolutionarycommunist.org/index.php/editorial-a-welcome/1447-lenins-imperialism-and-the-split-in-socialism.html

  11. Michael MacGregor says:

    To Mr Monaghan and others…why bother trying to change the Labour party? Is there a single bit of evidence that can be seriously cited in proving that it can be forced to act in the interests of the working class. Now, having seen Ken Loach’s ‘Spirit of ’45’ there, some may claim that delivery of free healthcare and education, housing and jobs makes the Labour party of 1945 almost socialist. That will be the socialist Labour government that was torturing the Kenyan people, bombing Athens and jailing, flogging and hanging Malayan trade unionists in the rubber plantations. Very socialist! Or is it just socialism for the white folks, did the welfare state extend to India- its people were paying for it after all! Now the system is turning on the working people here, state welfare is under attack and we defend it. Labour will never lead any fight back and to argue this is to not only waste time but, more dangerously, to sow illusions that need to be thoroughly exposed and challenged.

      Perhaps if more in Britain had spoken out about or shown more concern for at the time or since those atrocities you mention, we would not now be in this position,
      Now we are the only ones left to exploit and as the poem said!

      Then they came for me,
      and there was no one left to speak for me.

  12. Annos says:

    “Will the UK and USA also go for the automatic seizure of money from accounts? My guess is they have been quietly planning on it but will now think twice about admitting to it. Preferring to keep it quiet until the next collapse when ‘circumstances call for desperate measures’ etc etc.”

    “The reality is the banks are still bust – even the ones making huge profits – and when – not if – when the next bubble bursts and one bank starts to bring down another – they will all come for your money and we will all be collectively punished in order to make sure the wealthy and the powerful stay that way.”


  13. Serenity says:

    I think they are going to create another housing boom what with planning laws, selling off council houses in London with a £75.ooo discount and the budget yesterday encouraging second homes and BTL.
    Then watch those interests rates rise!

    Labour are failing to see the problems with workfare and any inforced work, pandering to the Mail and Sun readers, this is a huge failure by Byrne and co. wowpetition
