Disabilty Truth, Lies and propaganda

Yet more sickening anti-disabled propaganda in the right wing press today. The despicable journalists eager to push the anti-disabled message of the libdemTories led by ID Smith as they desperately try to force through the Welfare Reform Bill.  At the same time attacks on the disabled increase “He deserved all he got, he is disabled” shouted the teenage defendant accused today of attacking a disabled man in the street. FULL STORY

For one instance, the RNIB campaigned for many years to get our 4,900 severely blind people(Those with zero sight) onto the higher rate of mobility to compensate for the many extra needs this disability costs. This award from May 2011 may now be rescinded under the new rules for PIP assessment.

As far as the benefit cap goes, I can’t see any sense in it personally, surely it should be on a regional basis as it mostly attacks families in expensive areas, big families or those flung on the LibdemTory dole queue who have large mortgages

Chancellor George Osbourne is now saying it’s all Labour’s fault that RBS boss Stephen Hester got his £1million pound or so bonus share award today. Not worth commenting on that. It’s reported that Hester will earn around £8million this year.
