Today the Spartacus Report was launched, detailing just how many people are opposed to the Coalition's disability benefit reforms and why. Discussion of the Welfare Reform Bill is due to resume at its report stage on 11 January in the House of Lords. None of us plans to get ill, become disabled or wish to become so. If those of us not yet disabled were to support those that are, imagine what we could achieve.
(You might also like to sign Pat Onion's e-petition to support disabled people and their carers. )
Nick and Dave - if you want to join in with a lot of other people in supporting disabled people and carers, you could take a look at the petition at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/20968 .
It asks for you to stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, carers and families. We feel like we're in the middle of a perfect storm.
Please listen to those signatures and take a pause.
