    I contracted Polio 60 years at the age of 2 years and worked all my working life I only applied for my DLA 10 years ago which was awarded for life. With the natuaral deteriation and the on set of Post Poilo Syndrome seem unlikely that short of a mirical I will be better by 2013. and now to be told by George Osborne he dos’nt believe I have Polio and requirers me to go thro the humiliation of a medical to prove it. Surly he has confusing this benifit with Incapacity Benefit which is related to the ability or inability to work. Although I understand the need to crack down on able bodied how have latched on to this benifit they are putting the genuine disabled person who has gone thro life fighting discrimination in the same light as the abled bodied poeple who falsely claim this benifit’

      Able bodied have latched onto this benefit, what with the medical and the way it is to get it you really think able bodied have latched onto it, because that is fraud.

    I agree so much with Mr Wilkinson, I have a paralised right arm when I was able I returned to work as a sheet metal worker until my left arm gave up the ghost. Now my left arm does not work properly my sholder is in pain my elbow aches and my hand becomes numb after about ten minutes work. I am not allowed physio on the NHS because it is a long term problem and that looks bad on there figures, I cannot think of any sort of work I can do if anyone has any ideas please let me know I am only 51 years of age and I would love to work again, can anybody out there please help me with ideas Thank you

    Osborne and his multimillionaire cronies club don’t care about us the ‘undeserving sick’, they are alright Jack but didn’t you know “We’re all in this together”!

    I am a sufferer of Chronic ME, for over 11yrs the disease has left me housebound with little mobility or lifestyle choices. To go out I need an electric chair. I need constant support from my partner every 24 hours.
    It is a devastating disease, I am permantley drained and in constant pain, alongside many other side effects of ME.

    I suffer from fatigue that effects every day of my life and severe balance problems.

    If DLA is reduced or removed, I would be unable to go out or have a life, maybe thats what the Government want, make our life so intolerable that we decide to end it.

    Oh* George! how misguided you are*
    I’m one of your so-called skiver’s!
    in 1990*
    I suffered a brain-heamorrhage!
    when I was awarded an indefinite,
    disability living allowance!
    I was grateful to Maggie*
    for introducing it!
    and was truly sorry,
    when she died!
    she had true compassion*
    where is yours?
    incidentally* I have no urge to burn down houses,
    with 6 kids in!
    as you imply*
    in one of your speeches!

    Retired by the govt with an invalidity pension in 1994, following cancerx2, thyroid non-existent, pituitary ditto, deformed spine/arthritis, chronic pain, all sorts of its and bits such as IBS, osteopenia, hypermobility syndrome, sub-arachnoid brain haemhorrage in March this year. 52 tablets plus injection daily. Found fit to be in work-related activity group, benefits withdrawn. I have a letter from Lord Freud (boss of the DWP) which states that this group is for people who will move into employment in the short to medium term. I sent the DWP a letter this week from just one of my many consultants who says it is unlikely that I will ever be able to work again. Meantime we have to get by on my sumptuous £6000 a year pension.

    I’m taking a deep breath to calm down. What type of govenment do we have? Atos, took away my daughters DLA, she scored 0 out of 15. We know the scum who work for Atos are told to score 0 or low, A GP resigned because he was scoreing to high and was told he was not following orders, and we know ” Orders must be obayed”.

    My daughter cannot work her GP has said her physical and mental health are so bad .

    Please if your are a Tory Libdum or Labour, because you really are all in it together, stay away from my front door.

    “…the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped. ”
    Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey

    “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.”
    Mahatma Ghandi

      Kevin the Ghandi quote shows how little thus government cares did I use the C ( CARE ) word in same breathe as Tory government ? Forgive me I must of had a mental block ! The way things are going there is no care I wonder what Ghandi would make of it all now ?
      The weak ill, and mentally ill, disabled all under attack ! The unemployed under attack yet no jobs out there poverty hungry children yet we are not a 3rd world country how can this be ?? We as a country have sent aid all over the world yet it’s own residents are starving now where is the help for them ?
      It feels like ethnic clensing of the less fortunate people who are ill and least able to help themselves !
      The have nots are being treated with less regard than war prisoners we have no
      Rights treated like dross being kept on the edge of surviving one sanction away from starvation our children to ! It’s not living its surviving by the skin of our teeth 😡. It’s hardly surprising there has been so many deaths & suicides because of the desperation and stress all are living under .
      Living in hope the human rights from EU are now looking into the treatment of people and the appalling sanctions that at most are fabricated and usually unfounded yet just a way to keep us all in line ! If ask for help while they look into your claim told you are not entitled to anything !! How can this be ? These sanctions take more than 2 weeks to
      Be looked into how do they expect people to survive with no income ? They lose. There Homes because cannot pay there rent ! Council tax no chance of catching up with payments you
      Would be lucky if they paid you back money when proven you did not deserve the sanction in the first place . It’s catch 22 .
      Some families have even had there children put into care because they had not paid rent when they had no option to pay because of the sanction . It’s a NO WIN situation .
      I don’t hold much hope that the investigation by EU human rights will make any difference if the government decide to ignore them ! They ignored human rights objection to the bedroom tax ?
      This government seems to think there above the law ie the child abuse alleged claims ? I am beginning to think there TEFON coated nothing sticks to them i

    For the record, the following list are the policies Labour have announced for 2015 so far. Under absolutely no definition could this list be thought of as right wing. None. Is it perfect? Of course not. Do I wish they would go further? Of course I do. Will they stick to every one if they win in 2015? None of us can possibly know. Sadly, you still can’t get crystal balls on Amazon.

    But the list represents the progressive Labour party we’ve had for decades. Doubt them, push them, hold them to account, but if you want the Tories out and you live in a marginal seat, voting for anyone but Labour will get you exactly what you most fear. 5 more years of Cameron.

    -An £8 minimum wage
    -Fight for a living wage
    -Repeal Health and Social Care act
    -Repeal the Gagging law
    -Repeal the bedroom tax.
    -An end to inaccessible WCA centres
    -200,000 new homes pa by 2020
    -A mansion tax
    -A freeze on energy bills
    -Guaranteed jobs or training for young people out of work for a year or longer
    -A clampdown on exploitative landlords & more stable, secure rental contracts
    -25 hours of free childcare for 3 & 4 year olds
    -A clampdown on exploitative zero-hours contracts.
    -Integration of health and social care
    -Maximum 48 hour wait to see a GP
    -Mental health training for all NHS staff
    -A reformed WCA overseen by sick and disabled people
    -Penalties for every mistake Maximus make
    -ESA claimants out of the work prog
    -Reverse the 45p tax rate back to 50p
