People with disability and their carers have been reeling from the attacks on benefits and services and so far their voices have been largely discounted.

  1. Sue Brock Says:

    The petition re the bonus thing at RBS got over 80,000 signatures in 24 hours! It has taken weeks/months (?) to get Pats petition to it’s current level of signatures. I think there are 2 problems. The first is not being able to get our message across, not being able to reach people and the second is that many of those with disabilities are not on line. I guess I could add a third problem —— lack of money. I am wondering if there would be some scope within the union movement to get some advertising sponsored? Sue
