Esther Mcvey Letter Arrives @ Parliament

Almost a month ago Debbie Sayers & I wrote a letter to Esther McVey disputing her use of statistics & offering a wide range of evidence which demonstrated just this.

866 people signed the letter and many left harrowing tales of suffering as a result of  ‘Welfare Reform’; which were then appended to the end of the signatures; the letter was posted yesterday by recorded delivery to arrive at Parliament today.

Aside from posting today @ 1pm we are also emailing the following Politicians, Ms McVey, IDS,, Shelia Gilmore – also campaigning about misusing stats, and Michael Meacher, John McDonnell Ann McGuire & Liz Kendall as they have been sympathetic & supportive of the campaign; Dame Anne Begg – chair of Work & Pensions Committee has already received a copy and indicated her support.

If you’re up for it why not email your own MP with a copy of the letter ? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n2QVXOKKSfkn9dwXOvmQ74Vzbhyx7HXEbid8EpEb674/edit The more Politicians became aware the better chance we have of this working.

Most of you will also be aware of what occurred as a result of your letter, we set up the petition to hold IDS to account, as he is ultimately responsible for everything that’s comes out of the DWP; to date we have  over 52,000 signatures. https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/work-pensions-committee-hold-ids-to-account-for-his-use-of-statistics-2# and if you’ve not already signed, please do.

Well that’s the news on this up to date, we certainly had no idea what began out of frustration & fear would become but, we think it demonstrates when we all pull together we can achieve our goals.

Until the next update x

  2. Thank you and all those who are doing this. I wish I could do more but I just don’t have the energy. I’ve been fighting the system on my own since becoming disabled, and just plain worn out, disgusted at how we’re viewed and treated. I may be weary, but won’t let this lot grind me down completely. Thanks Jayne

  6. Hi Jayne.
    You and Debbie have put so much into this, and I am pleased it will soon land Esther McVey’s desk, and the desks of her cronies. It will at least tell them the truth of the matter, I just wonder if they will put the record straight and issue a public apology to all of us (but I won’t hold my breath).

  8. Hi! Jayne I will send to my MP but I doubt I will get a reply, sent numerous letters reg abuse of statistics and the only reply was to ask me for my address to prove I am a constituent but what can I expect he is a TORY grrrr! ….Keep up the good work Jayne xxx
