Yesterday I asked if you thought our campaign for The Truth & Statistics was worth it; overwhelmingly you all share our need for truth, and for this I THANK YOU and am pleased to report the sharing of the post resulted in another 200 signatures; today I’m picking up on the comments and you advice offered and setting out the current tags, possible promotional ideas etc for our campaign.
Our second petition reads-
The House of Commons – Stop Ministers Spinning Statistics Enforce the Recommendations of W&P Select of Use of DWP Statistics.
|Dame Anne Begg (Chair)||Labour|
|Anne Marie Morris||Conservative|
|Mr Mike Thornton||Liberal Democrat|
|Dame Angela Watkinson||Conservative|
MPs who supported the 1st petition included John McDonnell & Michael Meacher; I’m sure there were others but…time has done its usual job on my memory, if you are in contact with any MPs you feel may support us please tell them about it.
Roswynne Jones of the Mirror has from the start supported this campaign and I’m sure will cover the struggle soon; again as with the Politicians it you have contacts for any journalists – press or TV/Radio please contact them; should you, or indeed they, wish to speak to either myself or Debbie let us know in comments, Tweet @JayneLinney @DebbieSayers or via the same names on Facebook; we’d Love to hear from you.
It is Vital we don’t forget the reasons MP Misuse stats – they are using the spun data as a form of social control applying psychological coercion to as Friedli says ‘formulate and gain consent for the current regime of welfare reform”. They do this without underpinning knowledge nor without concern for the real damage this causes to the mental health of the people they purport to serve.
The question now is – if We don’t Fight Back, Who will?
