The Broken of Britain – The Final Countdown

It has been a truly hectic week for all here at The Broken of Britain Towers. We have been putting the finishing touches to a new national campaign that launches on Monday. The campaign will aim to oppose those provisions of the Welfare Reform Bill that are ‘anti-disability’. There is a lot of support for this campaign, and we know that you will hlp us make it a success.

As part of the campaign, there will be a debate in Westminster Hall on the reform of Disability Living Allowance on the morning of the 9th of March, a couple of hours prior to the Second Reading of the Welfare Reform Bill. The Second Reading is the first opportunity for the House of Commons to debate a Public Bill. This means that the debate at Westminster Hall, from 9.30am – 11am, will give MPs a reminder and primer on the issues to raise regarding Disability Living Allowance.

Finding an MP willing to request a debate at such an opportune timing was a major coup, and we hope that many MPs will participate. I will be briefing the organiser of the debate, Hywel Williams MP, early next week, so that he can decide which issues to discuss and where he wants to steer the debate. For this briefing I will need your help and input, so that I can suggest points to be raise from all disabled people and not just myself.

Please visit The Broken of Britain forum to leave your suggestions on points you want to see raised during the debate.

    we must carry on the fight, we are the opposition, and people power is the key………….the government can do u-turns if put under enough pressure, there are so many of us that can make our feelings known in some way, let’s all do what we can…

    Unfortunately it’s taking ages to get my account validated, in order that I may add a question on the forum. I can’t even see other people’s comments now. I get sent straight to the login page and then the message waiting for validation
