Time to send some e-mails to some Lords
Congratulations to tBoB for putting this together. It’s a brilliant briefing on this currrent Welfare Reform Bill. Pity this bill is only son of the monster Welfare Reform Bill that Purnell pushed through – the one that set up the ESA categories and regimes.
All this talk by fit people of how to manage the lives of people with disability. Pity no groups representing people with disability were strong enough then to say – whooah – STOP – don’t do this to us. At least we are stronger now and getting stronger all the time.
The time is coming to take on the real problem – to change the ESA structure so that all people with disability are in a safe group designed to support and help them without time limits, threats, sanctions or madatory work activity.
