An email I have just received from reader Linda, published here because I agree with every word she says about McVey. Especially after reading pile of scribble in link to Daily Fail.


I feel so upset I had to email someone, you were the only one I could think of. 

I know this is the Daily Mail, but… how could anyone write this:

It makes me feel so sad, marginalised, under threat…

You will probably have heard this article before you get this email. But I was so upset by the tiny excerpt I heard on the radio "many disabled people are nothing of the sort", it has ruined my day, apparently said by the "Minister for the Disabled" - so glad we are thoroughly supported by those in charge!

Thank you truly for the work you do to spread the truth about disabled people. I am so very sad that the message in this so-called newspaper is still being shouted from the rooftops. Why do some people hate disabled people so much?

Kind regards, 


Updated Monday 1 April: I've started a petition to Sack McVey as Minister For Disabled People. Please share.

    Esther McVey claimed in a recent Look North Interview that 50% of people on DLA had NO corroborating evidence for the claim and that’s why everyone was being reassessed. BBC reporter didn’t even challenge her.

      Because the bbc along with all newpapers run by news international and also sky are in Camerons pocket! I read independent news now.

    I have had to fight tooth and nail for my DLA and I have to keep appealing. Certain illnesses or disabilities do NOT get better, with a bit of luck deterioration is slowed but that is not the case with all people. McVey needs a check up from the neck up – odious, vile woman!
