It is sad to say that many of us who have a disability or impairment will be able to recall experiences of having been bullied, picked on, singled out and abused, both verbally and physically, as we go about our lives. Would it be fair to say that we often take this abuse as being a ‘normal’ part of our daily routine, experiences that we have perhaps come to expect and, in the eyes of many as I will explain, something we should ‘put up’ with?

The ‘incident’ that inspired this article occurred on Saturday 14th March 2015. My partner and I were waiting to catch a train to Euston from Watford High Street Overground Station…

Is LEICESTER Ready for the #FightForOurLives? I Hope so pls SHARE if you can say YES

Well we have only twenty days left of this disgraceful, uncaring, inept and murderous Coalition Government and the same goes for our Elected Mayor and councillors.

Now is the time for you to decide which party really deserves your vote if any. All you need to remember is that if you are not sure who to vote for then PLEASE don’t just vote willie nilly and waste your vote on someone your not sure about. If this is the case then it would appropriate for you to spoil the voting sheet, this way you are still making your choice to be registered at the count. This you should do for both the General Election and also the City Wards and the Elected Mayor vote.

I at this point have not decided who is really worthy of my vote, so come the day it looks like a spoiled voting sheet from…

just a little bit of fun …

It’s the early hours of the morning. In number 10 Downing Street, just call me Dave picks up the ‘phone. His hand shakes as he nervously dials the number …

A calming female voice says, “Good morning. Thank you for calling the election helpline. Please note that all calls are recorded for security and training purposes. Calls from a BT landline cost 10 pence a minute (plus VAT) calls from mobile networks may be higher”.

Music plays … Always look on the bright side of life by Monty Python


The female voice speaks again. “Thank you for holding, your call is important to us”

More music…

Then another female voice speaks. This one is NOT calming. This one sounds like … Margaret Hodge.

“If you are the candidate for a marginal seat, press 1″

“If you are the present incumbent of Number…

Joe Halewood writing as @SpeyeJoe has reprinted a letter from the Tory Chief Whip informing IDS his #BenefitCap will actually cost money!

This is yet more evidence of IDS electing to continue his campaign to punish the poorest of us for the complete cock up by the banks and previous Governments, despite it costing the public purse?

Further nickd at http://ilegal.org.uk/ has spent this week posting more evidence that IDS has been Lying to both his own party and the public throughout the Coalitions Term in Government; this covers Lies about Incapacity benefit, ESA and the Work programme.

Isn’t is time for IDS to be held responsible for these Lies, the same lies that have seen hundreds of chronically sick, disabled and workless people Die under his watch;  irrespective of Who wins on May7, IDS will still remain responsible for the man who oversaw the deaths of so many


These are the reasons for the long running #TRUTH Campaign and whilst Debbie and I THANK all 6000+ signatories so far we need more; If YOU believe IDS deserve to answer for these LIES & DESTRUCTION please SIGN & SHARE  https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/investigate-ids-for-lies.

Would be good to be able to take along a batch of 100,000s of names to the next Government showing

#UKIP ally believes we disabled are contagious

The content of Tom Pride’s excellent post has enraged me enough to actually write; I’ve been away from the computer after a nasty fall which left me virtually unable to use the keyboard for almost a month. This in turn aggravated my Depression; ergo I’ve been quiet, but reading that a friend and ally of the vile little excuse for a man Farage, thinks “disability an “epidemic” infuriated me enough to blog.

Epidemic is defined by Collins as:


  1. (esp of a disease) attacking or affecting many persons simultaneously in a community or area


  1. a widespread occurrence of a disease   ⇒ an influenza epidemic
  2. a rapid development, spread, or growth of something, esp something unpleasant;

This clearly suggests the leader of the Polish “New Right” Party Janusz Korwin-Mikke, views us disabled people as being contagious, and that we are all out to spread our various “impairment of normal physiological functions” like a plague; infecting the regular ‘normal’ people , we come into contact with.

These comments occurred after the paralympics in 2012, along with further equally noxious opinions such as the lack of African teams indicated our “epidemic” hadn’t yet reached this continent resulting in “the blacks will soon conquer the world and slaughter us“; ‘us’ presumably being the Rich White Man.

Given this I propose we pestilent disabled, unite with our black comrades to remove these psychotic Fascists, and rather than slaughter them, remove them to some safe place where they can undergo the psychiatric therapies they desperately need.

Read Tom’s piece to here for more justification of my suggestion.

ESA: ‘The fiscal fire starter’

Chancellor Osborne has one heck of a problem…

IDS is burning a hole in the Treasury budget and no one can put out the fire.

In his final budget, Osborne delivered what you’d expect any Tory chancellor to deliver, the promise of tax cuts with a personal allowance of up to £11,000 by 2017/2018, beer duty cut by 1p a pint and cider by 2p, 2% cut in excise duty on scotch whisky and other spirits while wine duty frozen, Petrol duty frozen, first £1,000 interest on savings income to be tax-free for basic rate taxpayers and a £500 allowance for 40p tax ratepayers, plus enticing annual savings limit for ISAs increased to £15,240.  That’s not to mention a “fully flexible” ISA which will allow savers to withdraw money and put it back later in the year without losing any of…
